After high school, people on the spectrum often find themselves on disability without much to do. In fact, "35 percent of young adults (ages 19-23) with autism have not had a job or received postgraduate education after leaving high school." (Shattuck et al., 2012)
Now open in Carmel, No Label at the Table baked food company's mission is to "provide employment opportunities and job skills training for people with autism." When asked by the Indy Star about her company's name, founder Shelly Henley explained, "No label or diagnosis will define my employees, and no food label should limit someone to not having good food."
In the interview, Henley also encouraged other businesses to hire persons with autism explaining that simple, repetitive tasks that seem tedious to some people are engaging and rewarding for a person with autism.
BehaviorWorks ABA uses, supports and advocates natural treatment for our patients. We will be buying treats from No Label at the Table!
