Children with autism are often high-functioning, yet might have difficulty with motor, social or verbal skills. For some, this might mean a career of underemployment and dissatisfaction, a fate No Label on the Table hopes to improve.
“Our goal was always to grow a thriving business, employing only people with autism,” Founder Shirley Henley said. “We strive to provide meaningful employment, a feeling of accomplishment and belonging to our employees. Now, we hope to be a bright example of inclusion and diversity in the Arts & Design District, where we can inspire the other communities to change their perceptions of the capabilities of people with autism. We hope to motivate others to provide similar opportunities and provide hope to other parents of individuals with autism.”
