JOB OPENING -- Seeking AUTISTIC WEBSITE DESIGNER -- WORK FROM HOME - NO INTERVIEW SKILLS REQUIRED
I am an autistic entrepreneur, who is looking to tap into autistic gifts. I am looking to start a house cleaning business and need a website for that. The decision to seek an autistic adult isn't because it is the right thing to do. It is because it makes the most business sense. By effectively tapping into autistic gifts, I create higher quality work at a lower price. For more information and to apply click on the link above.

We are looking for people who are 18 years and older with developmental disabilities to complete a survey asking questions about transportation. Developmental disabilities: 1) start at birth or during childhood; 2) are expected to continue throughout the person’s life; and 3) impact the person’s ability to perform in major life activities. Examples of developmental disabilities include but are not limited to Autism, Behavioral Disorders, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Intellectual Disability, and Spina Bifida.
We are trying learning about what transportation people with developmental disabilities use to get to activities in the community. We are also trying to learn about people’s experiences using public transportation (i.e., buses and trains) and what makes it hard or stops a person from using public transportation. We want to know how transportation impacts participation in life activities such as work, doctor’s appointments, shopping, social events, and any other activities important to the person. The findings of this survey will be used to identify transportation issues and help in the development of future transportation training programs.
Participants can have help from another person to complete the survey including reading and explaining the questions, or checking the answer box if needed. Proxies can also complete the survey for a person with a developmental disability. Proxies are people that know the person with a developmental disability who can answer the questions the way that they think the person would answer the questions. These people might include a parent, relative, caregiver, guardian, or support staff. The questions take about 10-20 minutes to complete.
