Issue Feature: Autism
When my son Clay was a two-year-old he was diagnosed with autism. We were told he would not talk or live independently, but he’s proved them wrong.
At fourteen, Clay wanted to earn his own money, so he decided to do a letterbox drop. My young entrepreneur advertised his services to take the wheelie bins out the night before the garbage collection and would bring them back in the next day after school. About ten residents hired him. And his business began.
During this time, Clay also started applying online for after school jobs. But after two years and not one interview, we had a life changing conversation with him.
