Firm wants staff with autism

17th July 2009

A Danish computer company that employs workers with autism is expecting to begin work in the UK soon.

Specialisterne was started by Thorkil Sonne whose own son has autism. He now employs more than 40 people with the condition.

He is currently finalising plans to set up a branch in Glasgow and hopes to hire 50 workers in the first three years.

Autism affects about 1% of the population across Europe.

People with the condition say a job is the one thing that would really improve their lives according to the National Autistic Society.
