April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day

Summary: 
The theme for 2015 is "Employment - the Autism advantage."

It's World Autism Awareness Day today and the UN theme for this year is employment. We thought it was a great time to re-post this video interview with Devon, who was part of our "on my way" project. We're happy to update that he did get the job and now works at Thrifty's!

In this video Devon prepares for an interview with the help of an employment specialist at Douglas College.
