This is why we were thrilled to learn of Parkland, Florida’s Rising Tide Car Wash making it their mission to employ individuals with autism.
According to www.autismdailynewscast.com, “The D’Eri family opened up the car wash in June 2012 based on a business motto that combines dedicated training and high standards in their public commitment to employ people with autism.”
“Inspired by the fears and hopes for the youngest in the family, Andrew D’Eri, the founders of Rising Tide Car Wash are proving that a business can hire workers with autism and deliver superior service.”
“For months I became depressed, aggressive. I felt like everyone knew I was not normal. And then this came along,” said Richard, a Team Leader and one of Rising Tide’s many workers living with autism.
“So when I found out about this, I was like, OK, maybe this is a chance to prove myself.”
The Rising Tide Car Wash website has a support page for anyone who wants to help businesses known to hire people with autism.
