One of the most popular articles on the Workology website is about autism hiring programs. I wrote this article while working with a technology startup that provided resources for caregivers of children who had disabilities and needed access to resources and support. It's been one of our most popular articles for job seekers and their family members who identify as autistic. However, there is a lot of debate about autistic specific hiring programs and the types of jobs they can or cannot do. And that's what we're talking about today. This episode is part of the Workology podcast. It's part of the Future of Work Series powered by PEAT, the Partnership on Employment and Accessible Technology. In honor of our 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act this year, we're investigating what the next 30 years will look like for people with disabilities at work and the potential of emerging technologies to make workplaces more inclusive and accessible. Today, I'm joined by Haley Moss. Haley is the author of The Middle School: The Stuff Nobody Tells You About and a freshman survival guide for college students with autism spectrum disorders, the stuff nobody tells you about. She also illustrated and contributed to the anthology What Every Autistic Girl Wishes Her Parents knew. Her writing about autism, neurodiversity and disability has appeared in publications such as The Washington Post, ABA Journal, Huff Post, Teen Vogue, Fast Company and more. Haley also co-hosts the Spectrumly Speaking podcast, which is dedicated to women who are on the autism spectrum. In addition, she has a forthcoming scholarship on lawyers with disabilities, disabilities’ intersection with standardized testing, as well as on crimes against disabled children. She currently serves on the Florida Bar for Young Lawyers Division Board of Governors, the constituency board for the University of Miami, NOVA, Southeastern University Center for Autism and Related Disabilities and the Board of Directors for Different Brains. She is the chair of the Unicorn Children's Foundation Junior Board and is a co-chair of the Miami-Dade Chapter of Florida Association for Women Lawyers Diversity Committee. Wow, Haley, that is a lot and I'm so excited to have you on this podcast.
