Round Rock, TX - Project Genius is proud to announce an internship program for individuals with autism. We love solving puzzles of all shapes and sizes and the autism puzzle is near and dear to us. Our objective is to provide a real work experience for individuals with autism to learn basic job skills.
This is a paid internship for individuals with autism over the age of 16. The program is designed to model a real working experience by requiring candidates to fill out a job application, attend an interview, and engage in activities such as clocking in, working with a supervisor, and setting customized performance goals. Project Genius seeks to provide opportunities for participants to build social skills by working together in teams and having lunch together as a group.
“I have a very personal interest in helping individuals with autism,” said CEO and founder Brandi Pinsker. “I have a 12 year old son with autism and I am constantly looking for real world opportunities that are flexible enough to allow him to learn at his pace. Project Genius is in a unique position to offer real work for individuals with autism in a supportive environment.”
Every participant in the program will receive one-on-one attention so that their particular talents and challenges can be considered. Project Genius will meet with parents and/or therapists to learn about participants’ individual goals, which we can then incorporate into the program.
The summer session will run from June 5th to July 31st. Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 11am – 2pm. To learn more about the program or to apply, visit www.ProjectGeniusInc.com/summer-internship-2017
