OAR is a national charity located in Arlington, VA. Its mission is to apply research to the challenges of autism. As part of that mission, OAR is committed to research and programs that enhance life’s opportunities and quality of life for all persons affected by the disorder. To that end, OAR joined the Tysons Chamber in January 2015, expressly to build relationships within the Tysons community and lay the groundwork for its coming adult employment initiative.

 

With the race in April and April being National Autism Awareness Month, the Chamber saw the ideal opportunity to support autism and feature the work of the Organization for Autism Research (OAR), most notably its Hire Autism employment initiative. OAR believes that adults with autism can perform successfully in a wide range of jobs, and their skills and work habits can contribute to the bottom line. To that end, OAR developed Hire Autism, a Web porta that connects job seekers with autism to employers in need of their skills in a carefully structured, autism-friendly environment, and selected the Tysons business community as the ideal location to demonstrate its capabilities as well as the capacity of individuals with autism to find meaningful employment and become valued employees in a variety of area businesses.
