Ready, Willing and Able on CBC’s The Current

Against the backdrop of an announcement to close a sheltered workshop (in Ottawa), Dr. Bach speaks of the long-range goal of CACL for employment equality. Dr. Bach talks about the national Ready, Willing and Able initiative, which CACL, in partnership with the Canadian Autism Spectrum Disorders Alliance (CASDA), began to implement on a national level in late 2014. He provides detail of what the initiative is and its national goal of real jobs with real pay. Listen to the entire discussion on CBC’s website.
