There are so few chances for people who have autism and complex needs to find employment.
Although the chances are most of us would be quite happy not to go to work some days it is hard to imagine a life without the structure and purpose work give most of us.
We are giving the opportunity to Zach and other young people who have autism and complex needs to contribute to the world of employment and work.
We want to raise awareness about the complexity of Autism and dispel common misconceptions and myths regarding autistic spectrum condition (ASC).
To give everyone and anyone a better understanding so that they can be more inclusive, informed and aim high for those on the spectrum, we know with the right support and chances so much can be achieved.
Along with our online shop we want to interact with others and share ideas for more Autism myth's to bust.
Anything we sell will be carrying a message about autism.
We hope to send the message that there is far more to those who are on the autism spectrum than a triad of impairment.
Any profits go straight back into our enterprise so with each purchase you are making a difference..
