World Autism Awareness Day was Tuesday, April 2nd.

More than one in 59 children in the U.S. now have an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Within the next 10 years, half a million people with an ASD will become adults. Job candidates with these disorders have historically been an overlooked group, with as many as 90% being unemployed or underemployed. Through their Autism Hiring Program, Dell allows candidates to demonstrate their skills outside of a traditional job interview.

Dell is committed to embracing neurodiversity and celebrating the different ways the human brain can work to solve problems.
