Meet The FillAble Team.
As parents of kids on the Autism Spectrum we have seen a need for services with a focus on workplace training and migrating into the workplace, for young adults with autism and other disabilities.
We started FillAble to help young adults gain the confidence and skills they need to adapt from school to the workplace, alongside their peers.
The basics of workplace etiquette and understanding expectations is fundamental to becoming and maintaining employment. For young adults with disabilities, this can be challenging. We believe that with adaptive programs, catered to the individual, we can help prepare these young adults, and employers for a success!
