Working in the Community

Kyle is employed with the office team at Jackson Lewis LLP in White Plains. In addition to assisting with special projects, Kyle’s responsibilities include filing, copying and organizing supplies.

He is a graduate of Project SEARCH Autism Enhancements, where he received hands-on work experience in an employment-training program that addresses the need for high-quality training so that young adults with autism can gain meaningful employment.

He spent time in the pharmacy, checking the expiration dates on medications and helping the pharmacists to process prescriptions. Kyle also conducted complex data entry projects for the NewYork-Presbyterian Center for Autism and the Developing Brain. This young adult demonstrated his aptitude for complex systematic projects and he developed his social and interpersonal skills by working with maintenance crews on collaborative projects. He is a valued member of their staff and his work ethic sets an example for everyone at the firm.
