Our Journey

With 1 in 68 diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and over 80 % unemployed, the three Co Founders of Spectrum Designs took action. In 2011 they created a business that could complement strengths and accommodate the challenges associated with ASD. They focused on the Apparel Decoration Business and Spectrum Designs was born. With $33,000 in sales achieved in its first year and 5 ASD individuals engaged in work training, Spectrum knew they were onto something. In 2012, the co-founders moved Spectrum out of its 200 sq foot backyard barn, and leased space at Nicholas Center, a non profit agency with the capability of offering on site support to its growing ASD workforce. A critical alliance was formed. With $124,000 in sales by the end of 2012 and 10 ASD individuals in their workforce, there was no turning back.
