The Miskolc Autism Foundation has developed a new progressive practice in its employment program where individual skills are taken into consideration. Great people with a planning and creative attitude have joined the seamlessly working employment program of the institution. They function as representatives of the values and advantages of design. They, too, are aiming to represent the interests and help the development of people living with autism. The handicraft products made this way are sold to financially support the employees living with autism. Furthermore, they are exposed to knowledge that reflects on visual and design culture, and thus their cognitive and manual skills are developed.
The profit coming from the project means continuous support for these – often unable self-sustain – young adults living with disabilities. They can participate in a work situation creating real value, and at the same time they can learn many new skills.
