A Canadian Bookstore Is Run Entirely by People with Autism

The future is bright for the employees of ARM Book Nook

The bookstore is wildly successful and well-loved by the entire community. It has many loyal customers who love to shop there regularly. The employees get valuable experience as well. Many young people who have worked at the store have now moved on to work at other jobs. The work experience helps employers feel more confident about hiring someone with autism. The employees themselves also gain communication and social skills that help them during their interviews. The store is giving these autistic people a chance to shine in their own community. Now they can show everyone just how awesome and valuable they can be!
