nonPareil Institute is dedicated to providing technical training, employment and housing to individuals who have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. We hope to one day be partially self-sustaining from the products our Crew build and market.
We have grown from 8 adults with autism to over 100 in just over two years! We provide technology training as well as the potential for jobs for adults with autism. We currently have 8 full-time and 12 part-time employees with autism.
We train adults with autism in technology to create video games and apps for such platforms as the iPhone, iPad, and Android.

Reviews for Nonpareil Institute
nonPareil is a ground breaking and LIFE CHANGING organization that is working with adults with Asperger’s in order to help them build technologies to support them in the future. WhiIe working for them as the AD, I see on a daily basis the impact and overwhelming change a little affirmation and love can do for those that have been discarded by the traditional system of education and work that neurotypical adults face with general ease. We are cutting edge with our technology, which few other nonprofits can match. Our crew members are making the apps, and on every level they are responding to our challenges and are growing and maturing from them. This is how to change the world. We are doing it one crew member at a time.
