LIPS aims to empower people with autism through labor inclusion.
There are many difficulties in reaching the inclusion of people with autism without learning disabilities in the labor market because companies lack insights on how to integrate them.
With the project, we plan to take a step forward to make the European economy a more inclusive one and bring about the many skills and talents people with autism have.
The aim is to leave no one behind and to take people with autism into account in the diversity of disabilities and their accessibility and support needs.
LIPS is needed as a support base and will become a space and an entity that will connect the world of work with people with autism in a sustainable way.
The project aims to enable a shared understanding that accounts for the needs of the diverse groups involved. Organizations that want to become involved in hiring people with autism need to receive training on how to do this.
All partners of LIPS are organizations working with a European scope and perspective with extended networks of national and international contacts comprising NGOs, companies, businesses, and public authorities across Europe and beyond.
LIPS will train educators, social workers, business representatives, psychologists, and others interested to offer activities to further awareness and ensure the integration of people with autism and that they receive appropriate support.
