​We review the companies that have done studies that prove that certain jobs are better suited for people living with autism, and are employing them. For example, Microsoft found that when they employ a person with autism in a certain Quality Assurance position, that person is able to catch errors in the software code 40% quicker than a person without autism. That's a savings to Microsoft's bottom line. Employers such as Walgreens, IBM, Ford, and Ernst & Young have also found huge benefits from hiring people living with Autism, mainly due to that person's ability to "think outside of the box".
