Job Training

Once the member has achieved academic proficiency, JoyDew trains members in basic business skills including how to use common software such as Microsoft Office, business communication and etiquette, and other competences critical to any 21st century job. Initial job areas of interest are then selected, and more job-specific training is added to their weekly program schedule to build skills that can be applied to a strength-matched employment position.

So far, JoyDew has identified a variety of jobs that people with autism perform at an advantage to the general population and has developed specialized training modules for each strength category:

Classes are taught by staff and domain experts who have expertise in the field. Some of the most popular job areas are:

Medical Imaging Services

JoyDew employees that possess strong visual acuity are trained to do a breast cancer pre-screening. The data collected so far showed that they can save a radiologist about 60% of screening time and use this time for diagnosis, which potentially increases the number of Stage 1 breast cancer diagnoses by 25%-35%.

JoyDew members get a hands-on learning experience that is specially tailored to meet the needs of learners on the autism spectrum. One of the unique areas in which people with autism excel is in medical imaging, where the ability to focus and pay attention to the smallest details is extremely important. Radiologists need employees with the skills JoyDew helps foster in its members. Those who come through JoyDew’s day programs are often highly sought after in the field. Medical imaging work performed by JoyDew members is done as a preliminary screening, to be sent to a medical professional for final approval.

Robotics Virtual Operation

The modern world is increasingly dominated by automation and robotics. We rely on robotics in the health care industry, the military, manufacturing, hospitality, mining, and so many other fields of employment. Some adults on the autism spectrum are especially well-positioned to take up key roles in the following sub-specialties, thanks to their logical reasoning skills, which are critical for the computer programming and mechanical engineering necessary for robotics:

  • Automation
  • Robotics engineering
  • Robotics programming
  • Remote operation

JoyDew can help members find their way in the competitive world of robotics and engineering. Anticipating a future dominated by robotics engineering and automation, JoyDew aims to help members develop the skills they need to be secure now and in the future.

Digital Content Management

The world of digital content is nothing without automation. JoyDew has discovered that many of its members have a knack for the work that goes into content management. This can be applied to website management, electronic documentation, database creation, ticket management and a variety of other applications.

These training areas are designed to take full advantage of the “superpowers” that are common among autistic people; skills such as hyper-focus, high visual acuity, logical capability, pattern recognition, attention to detail, self-learning, and the ability to enjoy repetitive tasks and perform them with a high degree of accuracy, without getting bored or tired.
