Matthew’s Story


Matthew (far right) secured his first paid job in June 2018 with support from the Autism Association’s Employment Program. His contract was to complete a backlog of electronic archiving with  Pitcher Partners.

Matthew fitted into the team very quickly and enjoyed the benefits of working in such an inclusive company where he was fully included in corporate events, parties and Friday sundowners. He even celebrated his
21st birthday with the company. Nearly a year on, Matthew’s great work at Pitcher Partners is still remembered and celebrated with 14 of his previous co-workers completing “A Walk for Autism” in the 8-day Walking for Autism Fundraising Challenge.

“By taking on the Walk for Autism, we are helping to break down barriers that keep people excluded and provide the best opportunities for people on the Autism Spectrum to engage, participate and thrive in the world around them.”
