ASDY-TECH is a NEW (Jobs-related) Program initiated by The HDS Foundation, Inc. This program focuses on providing training and potential employment to young adults who are on the Autism Spectrum. ASDY-TECH (coined after the Autism Spectrum Disorder Young adults), has been designed as a micro-enterprise entity of The HDS Foundation, Inc, and focuses on small technical projects that can be scaled to address the employment needs of this population, while meeting the requirements of different businesses and persons.
Every Thursday, for the remainder of January, the HDS Foundation would like to introduce you to our great team members and what they do at ASDY Tech.
Marco told us, “My experience at HDS is with scanning. I scan the files, some are too big or too small, so depending on the size of the file, the scanner can be fast or slow. Sometimes the scanner gets jammed. I have to fix the scanner to make the files fit perfectly and neatly. It takes time when the file papers go one by one. Once scanning is done, the file goes digital and the PDF file appears in the folder. I rename the file with the loan number and person’s last name. Then I drag and drop the complete file to the upload station. The scanning station is fun, relaxing, and I like that it can go on its own. I can master it little by little.”
