Mark’s Story

Our son Mark has Asperger’s, which has made it hard for him to start a career.  He found it difficult to find jobs that he was qualified for.  His father and I did our best to support him, but we worried whether Mark would ever be financially stable.

My friend recommended JSSA’s Specialized Employment program.  Through this program, Mark met with a knowledgeable specialist who worked with him on his resume and job applications, introduced him to potential employers, and prepared him for interviews.

After just a few months, Mark accepted a position for a job he loved.  JSSA’s employment specialist continued to meet with Mark even after he started working so he had no trouble adjusting in his new workplace.  He couldn’t have made this progress without JSSA.
