Looking at the Best

A recent article about a Danish company named Specialisterne really caught my attention.  This company works to find employment opportunities for people labeled with an ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder).  While I believe in working to find where the need for stimulation to a specific brain is----I am delighted to read of a man actually looking at the ABILITIES for these folks instead of the DISabilities. Bravo to you,  Thorkil Sonne!!

Mr. Sonne helps find ways for the workers with special needs to have their coping skills accepted in the workplace.  Things such as earplugs, clear written policies/rules, personal breaks, and others, help workers with ASD's work around their challenges and still contribute their own personal genius.

Looking at people as people and acknowledging what they can actually accomplish and contribute----I love it!
