In Brazil, Specialisterne has been operating since 2015. The first adults with autism and/or other neurodivergent conditions began training in November 2015 and working in June 2016. In 2021, the number of people we provide employment in Brazil, considering projects in the cities of São Paulo, Hortolândia, Rio de Janeiro and São Leopoldo, it now amounts to more than 200 people.
Following the bases of other Specialisterne offices around the world, in Brazil we have already obtained recognition from some entities and organizations, which we thank for honoring the work we do in favor of the professional inclusion of people with autism, valuing neurodiversity in companies.
