The transition from high school into the adult world can be a daunting experience for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The specialized services and supports provided through the school system are no longer available when they enter the workforce after graduation. Jason Henley, an individual with autism, dreamed of becoming a chef after he graduated from high school. Knowing that her son was unlikely to have a successful interview at a restaurant and would likely be put to work doing dishes, Jason’s mother found a way to empower her son to fulfill his passion for cooking. At age 18, Henley’s mother helped him open his own restaurant, No Label at the Table Food Company. This gluten free and dairy free food company is staffed only by individuals with autism, helping them pursue their passions despite the unique challenges they face. Jason and his mom are a testament to the fact that disabilities don’t have to stand in the way of dreaming big and fulfilling your aspirations! To learn more about Jason’s story, click here.
