The Arc’s Autism Assets @ Work


The Arc’s Autism Assets @ Work is an initiative to prepare individuals on the autism spectrum for job placement in the information technology industry. Autism Assets @ Work utilizes a proven methodology developed by Neurodiversity in the Workplace that has been used successfully with large technology companies including Dell, Microsoft and Dell to identify talent.

The Arc’s Autism Assets @ Work is not a job-placement program, but a skills-building, network-building, resume-boosting work readiness program.


Two-Week Dell Enterprise Experience

Selected participants will attend 2 weeks of classroom-based instruction on social communication, focus and concentration, collaboration etiquette, executive functioning, self-advocacy, managing emotions and more.

Participants will also engage in a number of team projects guided and facilitated by The Arc of the Capital Area staff that will culminate in a presentation of their work to staff and executives from Dell. At the conclusion of the experience, Dell hiring managers will make offers to the participants they select for a paid summer internship. Internships may lead to full-time employment.
