Dr. Temple Grandin's Dedication to TACT | November 2018

"My ongoing support for TACT is based on a number of factors including my belief that hands-on, project-based work is invaluable to all children, but inherently needed for those on the autism spectrum to succeed in the work force.  It is estimated that 90% of adults with ASD are under or unemployed. What many people don’t realize is that unemployment rates for those with ASD are higher than the unemployment rate for ALL disabled Americans in general, which sits at only 10.5% compared to 90% for those with ASD.  Early access to high-quality vocational training can be life changing for those with ASD."
