A business hit hard by the recession has been given a new lease of life thanks to a new scheme involving people with autism.

Following the closure of an 80-year-old rose farm in Connecticut, US last autumn, one member of staff Cliff Carter lost his job of 16 years, reports myrecordjournal.com.Prospects looked grim in the recession, but now Mr Carter is back on the farm, which has reopened thanks to a unique vocational programme which will see people with autism being employed and helped.Mr Carter told the news provider: “It’s nice to be back at work, there are not many places since the recession that have reopened.”The company have also taken on a summer intern, 19-year-old Matthew Radler, the first of many people with autism who will take on the responsibility of running the farm.The Growing Possibilities programme plans to create a model that will show just how valuable those with developmental disabilities can be in the workforce.According to the National Autistic Society, there are over half a million people in the UK with autism, which equates to around one in 100 individuals.
