    Nashville, TN

Program set up in cooperation with Specialisterne (Thorkil Sonne) and UBS to train young adults with autism and then transition them into the workforce.  Another person who works in Nashville office is Diane Shea, the delivery expert.  diane.shea@theprecisionists.com.

    The Precisionists is a for-profit consulting firm that started in Delaware as a "B" corporation (they have a mission to give back in some way to the community).  They are now in Nashville lining up clients and have already completed two 4-week training sessions.  Will be moving to a facility soon near Metro Center and plan to open other facilities in different parts of the area.  Prior to choosing trainees, they require them to attend a 2-4 hr. information workshop to get to know the potential candidates.  Family members, job coaches, etc. are also encouraged to attend.  If accepted, they will then go through a 4-week training program to gain confidence, build trust, learn to work in teams, etc.  They will then try to place candidates in jobs suitable to their skills and needs in a variety of industries (not just technology).

    They plan on having 3-4 classes per year from now on.  Interested parties can go on website and fill out a statement of interest (put down that you heard about it from Autism TN!) or can contact Kendal directly.

    5022 Old Hydes Ferry Pike

    Nashville, TN   37218

    John Camperlino, Supported Employment Director
    Spoke with John Camperlino about their supported employment program and it really sounds wonderful.  They take their time to look for just the right job that fits the person and then continues their support for a year!  He said it works best if the client comes to them BEFORE they go to Voc. Rehab.  They will work with the client to get an overview of the needs and skills and passions and will then go with the client to Voc. Rehab. to help them with the process.  Then once they get approved, everything will already be in place for them to immediately move forward.  If someone is already in Voc. Rehab., they can request them as a "vendor" so they can become a client.  Sometimes that may work or not, depending on your caseworker at Voc. Rehab.
