The Uniquely Abled Project

Glendale Community College, an AMP SoCal partner, teaches a 13-week CNC Machinist training program for individuals with high-functioning autism, which also includes instruction in job readiness, soft skills, site visits and open laboratory. Program graduates will qualify for entry-level positions such as machinist apprentice, CNC operator and CNC programmer. This unprecedented program was made possible through a collaboration with machine technology educators, specialists in education for those with autism, community organizations, and state and local social service agencies.
