Cafe in Ottawa Employs Youths and Adults with Autism

Ys Owl Maclure, a group which helps adults with autism navigate the world, has opened a cafe to provide jobs for youths and adults with autism.

I think this is great.  A lot of people on the spectrum have trouble with the interview process, so having some solid experience could make a big difference in future job prospects.  And it exposes more people in the community to those with autism and can help them to understand that not looking someone in the eye doesn't mean there isn't a caring and competent person on the other side of the counter.
