    Hope others will catch on! PACE takes some ideas and inspiration from North Carolina's TEACCH program.
    This looks a little different. Seems they've started their own tech/design company and given the jobs all to people on the spectrum. PACE is about matching employees with a wide variety of careers in the community. But the more people working toward the goal of employment for autistics, the better!

    I'd like to see this program in Washington State someday. I'd also like to see this program in every state that doesn't have it.

    The 'Specialisterne' program (LINK) from Denmark assists people on the Autism Spectrum with employemnt in Tech. related fields.

    LINK also includes 'Aspiritech' program in the U.S.. The 'Specialisterne' program has chapters in the U.S. - including a chapter serving the Silicon Valley Region.
