Applications are now being accepted through March 15, 2021 for The Autism Hiring Program’s spring 2021 session.

The program, sponsored by the Howard County Autism Society, seeks to address the needs of adults with autism who have high-level, marketable skills but need to build a more competitive advantage. At the same time, it connects small and mid-sized businesses in Central Maryland to a competent, capable workforce, providing staff training and ongoing supports.
