Building Towards A Bright Future

A YOUNG MAKER WHO HAS AUTISM STARTS A BUSINESS AROUND BUILDING STUFF

I’m stoked about this young man who with a little help and creativity is launching a small business.  One of the cool things about Brad’s startup is that it is a creative way to support someone with a significant disability to offer their unique contributions in the community. Unfortunately people with disabilities still live on the margins, but if we begin to see an individual’s unique abilities and figure out creative ways for them to offer those, then our communities will become even more vibrant and interesting. Hats off to Brad and his friends and family who helped tell his story and launch this cool enterprise.

MEET BRAD

Brad is 25 years old, and has autism. He can’t speak or read, but he has a knack for building things. He can understand any diagram or blueprint, no matter how complicated. For brad, putting together furniture is as easy as putting together a lego set. Brad’s family helped him start this business so that Brad could do what he’s best at, feel a sense of accomplishment, and be an active part of the community.

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is
    added I get four emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

    Many thanks!

      Unfortunately I cannot do that for you, but you should be able to change the setting yourself. On the Beyond Autism Awareness blog page, under the ‘You Are Following This Blog’ section, if you click on the ‘Manage’ button it will lead you to the list of blogs that you follow. At the upper right of that screen is the ‘Delivery Settings’ link where you can set all your delivery options. I hope this helps.
