90% of adults with autism and other disabilities are unemployed. State funding for programs for students with significant needs upon graduation at 21 is in jeopardy each year. This project at Hall High School seeks to partner students with and without disabilities to work together to create micro-businesses that could potentially follow each student with a disability into adulthood. Students will be able to create greeting cards and gift bags to sell in school and potentially at local businesses or for community events.
