In the United States, Approximately 90 percent of adults on the autism spectrum are unemployed or underemployed, and with the latest statistics of 1 in 88 being diagnosed, there is a tsunami of unemployment and government assistance on the horizon that our society and economy isn't prepared to face.
Programming Hope is a feature length documentary which takes an inside look at one company that took on that challenge... employing autism.
The nonPareil Institute is a software company that trains and employs autistic adults to develop and create video games and apps for smartphones and tablets.
The documentary will be a one year look at the company's growth, success and challenges from the perspective of the staff who are autistic... but have never let that word define them.
