SPECIALISTERNE: STORIES OF SUCCESS ACROSS 12 COUNTRIES The international network of Specialisterne chapters in 12 countries (Austria, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Northern Ireland, Singapore, Spain, USA) and the incredible work they are carrying out are all based on the same socially innovative business model - what we call 'dandelion philosophy'. A dandelion is only a weed in an environment where it is not welcomed. If the plant is transferred to an environment where it is welcomed, valued and nurtured – it turns into an herb with numerous medicinal and nutritional values. Autistic persons often struggle to feel welcome in the labor market despite having much sought after skills such as attention to detail, loyalty or an outstanding memory to name a few. Specialisterne chapters around the world strive to create an environment where each individual can thrive in workplace and provide support both for the individual and the employer to maintain this comfort zone. Read more about the local projects and initiatives on Specialisterne country websites.
