Florida partnership aims to help students on autism spectrum get career-ready

February 17, 2016

In a first of its kind program, two Palm Beach County charter schools are teaming up to help students on the autism spectrum become career-ready. Students from Palm Beach School for Autism are taking courses at South Tech Academy for commercial arts or IT and they are paired with a mentor from South Tech. The partnership is designed to teach the autistic students real-world skills and gain certification to help them find employment and live independently after they graduate.
