Autism Action Partnership

Partnership for Autism Career Employment - PACE

 

 

We provide exceptional employment supports for adults with autism who want to find and maintain competitive employment positions throughout our community. PACE is here to help individuals find work that they are interested in, that they are great at, and that they will be able to maintain for as long as they are happy in the position.

 

Mission

It is the mission of PACE to provide individualized, team supported, long term employment services to adults who have autism so they may reach their career goals, achieve greater independence, and contribute in a personally meaningful way to the community.

 

PACE Values

At PACE we highly value the dreams of our clients and we believe that through enthusiastic advisor support, collaboration with community employers, and unyielding support from the individual’s advocates, our clients will be enabled to reach their career goals.

 

Self-Determined Programs    

Every individual has the right to live their life in the manner of their choosing. At PACE, we promote clients directing their own services, determining their goals, and choosing their path in employment.

 

People First    

Individuals who have autism are individuals first. Individuals at PACE are truly appreciated for their unique perspective and contribution to our community.

 

Best Employment Possible    

Every employment opportunity is unique. Any job is not the answer to underemployment for adults with autism. It is in consideration of the whole individual and the characteristics of the workplace that PACE can assist the individual and the employer in finding a meaningful partnership in working towards a common goal.

 

Our approach is, in part, based on the TEACCH model from UNC. Click here to find out more information about TEACCH.
