Address:

5240 Tennyson Parkway, Suite 105 Plano TX 75024 USA

Mission:

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.

Results:

Since opening our doors in 2010, more than 360 adults with autism have received training at nonPareil Institute. We have used their natural enthusiasm for technology as a platform for developing vocational and social skills for increased independence. To-date, nonPareil has hired 58 adults with autism (most part-time, some full-time). For many this was their first job. Some have found part-time work while still training at nonPareil, while others have left nonPareil to join the workforce on a part-time or full-time basis. While training at nonPareil, some adults with autism have taken the important step of moving into an apartment and away from their parents' home for the first time. Others have mastered such steps towards independence as learning to drive or mastering the use of public transit. Most importantly, all have found acceptance - a place where autism is understood and growth towards fulfilled adult living is encouraged.

Reviews for nonPareil Institute

Rating: 5 stars  

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.
