Adam is an independent adult with autism. He travels all over the country visiting his mom with the income he makes at his job.
“My greatest wish for Adam is for him to be able to do things by himself,” says Adam’s father.
Adam loves interacting with people and gets the chance to do that at his job at Walgreens, where he is supported by an Employment Support Professional with the Autism Society of North Carolina. Adam’s earnings enable him to visit his mom, a traveling nurse, all over the United States.
Adam is an independent adult with autism who enjoys staying on the move with his friends, whether it’s at the gym or at a new restaurant.
