"Many families [impacted by autism] describe leaving high school as falling off a cliff because of the lack of services for adults with an autism spectrum disorder," says senior study author Paul Shattuck, Washington University.

Today, more than 70% of people with cognitive disabilities are unemployed and continue to “fall off of the cliff.” Today’s employment opportunities have dramatically changed along with how we socialize and communicate using technology as a life skill.

Digitability is changing these statistics by not only offering in-classroom work-ready training but also virtual options to bridge your students over "The Cliff."

Digitability is preparing students for jobs that exist in today’s tech-driven and social skill focused workplaces. With this innovative model of education and work-ready transition training, nearly 70% of Digitability’s first cohort of graduates obtained full-time employment independently. Digitability has been recognized for its innovation and impact on MSNBC, CNET, NPR, TechCrunch, Ted Talks and at Silicon Valley’s Social Innovation Summit.
