Thorkil Sonne

Excerpt from article:

“Sonne joined autism organizations in Denmark as a father of a child with autism. When he realized how few opportunities existed for people with autism — even for people with exceptional computer skills — he founded Specialisterne (Specialist People Foundation), a for-profit IT services company that embraces the unique talents of people with autism. He custom-designed an office culture for the needs of autism, then showed that a so-called “disability” can be an advantage when it comes to services like software testing, quality control and data entry.”
