"Hi5! Thanks The Arc for sharing this successful job opportunity! Your endeavors with business partners is vital. People with Autism desire to, are able to and do work. Having a Developmental or Intellectual Disability should not be viewed as an undesired employee. Congratulations Jessica Markle and fellow autistic coworkers for showing your value! "As a result of employing people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, Acadia Windows & Doors has a safer work environment and was awarded the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Award from OSHA (Occupational Health & Safety Administration) in 2007 and again in 2011."
Also, enjoyed knowing what Acadia’s Vice President of Manufacturing, Neill Christopher, had to say about this partnership with The Arc NCR. As a Parent of a child living on the Autism Spectrum, this partnership gives me and other families hope and confidence about a productive future.
