Welcome to Aspietec, a new social enterprise targeted at training and employing individuals
diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in the field of software testing. The idea is based on the success of other
organisations in Denmark, Germany, and the US, and the need for a similar service in the UK.
My story is no different from those of the other founders of similar companies. My son was diagnosed
with Autism over 15 years ago and although he has made excellent progress, the next stage of his development, the transition
to adulthood and independence is the most difficult. My mission is simple, to establish a for-profit social enterprise that
can deliver sustainable job opportunities in the world of information technology for adults with ASD.
The enterprise is new, we plan to get it up and running by the middle of 2013 when we will recruit
our first cohort of trainees. In the meantime, I am seeking board members and advisors who are able to volunteer their time.
