Education And Vocation

Florence  Church send me a link to her blog  that boasts of 10 colleges offering special programs for people on the ASD spectrum. This is wonderful news. These colleges offer programs which include support groups, special classes and assistance. Only the costs seem  a little prohibitive even by American standards. But then that is the cost of your degree. This is the link to her blog. 10 Impressive Special Colleges       
                                         Here is another website that I came across Jobs For Autism .There is so much happening that it feels good. Recently at the Global Autism Convention, Mr, Thorkil Sonne, Founder, Specialsterne and specialist people foundation, Denmark, spoke of his efforts where he has employed people in the spectrum in the IT industry. He is also a parent. He has 7 yrs of market experience.To know more you can visit their website specialist people 
                               Back home, Meera Raghu is setting up a vocational centre in Bengaluru.  Her contact number is   91 99453 37533. She is taking adults/ children in the age group of 14+. She is in the process of registering new candidates for this academic year. As mentioned in one of my earlier post there is also the vocational centre set up by Mrs. Hema Nataraj.

I love reading things like this, it really is good to know that there are still some good decent people in the world. If I had the time I would love to become a volunteer for something like this. Maybe when I retire I may get a chance to help others. Once again great blog, really enjoyed reading it. Have bookmarked you and will check back regular. Please feel free to take a look at my blog...New Build Planning Permission
