The X0PA AI Pte. Ltd. team won the AI for Accessibility Hackathon, organized by Microsoft in Singapore in 2019, which was the seed for this idea of creating an inclusive onboarding framework for Employers of Persons with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Tools to step towards
an inclusive workplace

Virtual Mentor for Persons with Autism

To connect the employers and persons with ASD.
A person with autism may be better at a particular job.
By gaining an understanding of autism, you can open up new possibilities for your organisation.
Why should you employ a person with autism?
People with ASD have a variety of exceptional skills, that enable them to thrive in a variety of roles such as sales, computer programming, statistician, just to name just a few.
As well as their individual strengths and talents, candidates with autism often demonstrate above-average skills in some or all of the following areas:
High levels of concentration
Reliability, conscientiousness and persistence
Accuracy, close attention to detail and the ability to identify errors
Technical ability, such as in IT
Detailed factual knowledge and an excellent memory
However, they are often disadvantaged in getting and keeping a job because of a lack of understanding and support.
Employees with autism may need some, often simple, support within the workplace to maintain competitiveness and thrive in the workplace.
