START Building Your Future Project

The goal of the START BYF project is to help individuals with ASD achieve meaningful employment and connections with the community so that they can be fully integrated citizens.  The BYF project is about creating a framework for how individuals with ASD can gain access to employment in their community and for training professionals across the state to implement that framework within the schools and adult service systems.
