once upon a time, a Danish oyster named Thorkil Sonne discovered a lethal grain of sand in his system: his son was diagnosed autistic. a black hole of hopelessness, that’s the life of families involved with the illness: no hope to help the patient and no hope for the patient ever to be useful to himself or society.
Thorkil Sonne turns the lethal grain of sand into a precious pearl: SPECIALISTERNE ( Specialits in Danish). a company to assess and train ASD people ( autistic spectrum disorder) so their special talents can be put to use to the service of the business sector . matching special skills to special needs .
Now on to the second pearl: SPECIALISTERNE FOUNDATION. goal is to create a million job for ASD people through social entrepreneurship . on its way to create a string of pearls encircling the globe. see more www.specialisterne.com
i like pearls, especially pearls with a social conscience.
why do autistic employees excel in the workplace? extreme concentration on their current task.
