ROCK HILL, S.C. -- A new nonprofit in the Charlotte area is helping those on the autism spectrum find the perfect job.

  • Adult Spectrum Transitions helps prepare them for jobs best suited for them
  • Group also helps with on the job training for employees
  • They also help clients with transportation

Adult Spectrum Transitions helps prepare those on the spectrum for jobs, and based on their skills and talents, helps place them in an area best suited for their needs.

Their first client, Michael Jones, is already excelling at his new job at the Microtel Inn and Suites in Rock Hill. His boss, Dilip Patel, says all businesses should try to help.

"In our hospitality industry, it’s tough to find good employees,” says Patel. “But it’s great to find motivated employees ready to come out, ready to work every day, come to work. It’s a win-win for us."

Adult Spectrum Transitions help with on the job training for the employees to become comfortable once they place them in a job.

They also help their clients with transportation and they hope soon to help with housing.
