An international not-for-profit that seeks to empower people with ADS to find work that takes advantage of their unique perspectives, communication styles and skills.
Specialisterne Canada works with businesses to help them integrate people on the autism spectrum, or with other neurodiversities, into their workforce.

Specialisterne Canada matches candidates with ASDs with employer partners.
There is a growing awareness amongst employers of the skills and talents many people with ASDs bring to organizations. This article sums it up.
