I LOVE Stories Like This! Dakota Just Needed Someone To Believe In Her — And Look How Bright She’s Shining Now!

Eight months ago, Dakota Kiriachuk was too anxious to even leave her basement. Now she’s so confident that she takes the train into work every week, excels at her new job, and even goes out with her coworkers for “wing night” every week — thanks in part to two companies who were willing to believe in her.

Meticulon is an IT consulting firm that recruits people on the spectrum, spends a few weeks assessing their abilities, and then find them jobs. While finding talented recruits on the spectrum is proving all too easy for the company, finding employers willing to take on people with ASD has been a bit more difficult. However, Critical Control, the company that hired Dakota, was willing to see what she could do — and they have been blown away!

Watch the video to see Dakota in action and learn about her incredible “autism advantage!”
