Like many young adults, Irene was struggling to find her way in the world. She yearned to be more independent, connect with others and find a satisfying job.

“I didn’t feel like I was going anywhere,” says Irene, who has Autism Spectrum Disorder. “I didn’t feel like I was so important.”

Irene turned to Easter Seals for guidance with defining her employment goals, developing her skills and searching for a job that suited her interests and abilities. Her persistence paid off when she was offered a position as an accounting clerk with a company that provides mobility products, wheelchair accessible vans and services for people with disabilities.

Now with renewed confidence, Irene is thriving in countless ways. Watch her movie and learn more about Easter Seals Workforce Development Services.
