8. Decent work and economic growth

8.5 The purpose of TWERK is to employ normally gifted people with autism or prepare them for employment. Employment is very meaningful for all of us: employment contributes to a positive self-image, it gives us the chance to self-realization, certainty of one's living conditions and job satisfaction; employment is a useful means of spending one's time and energy. Autistic adults have already often experienced the feeling of being a failure as a result of their autism. Therefore it is essential that they get the chance to experience that they 'are able to do something' and that they 'are useful'. And so continuity in support is indispensable.
