Primal Logic & Data Corp. debuts its Proof-of-Concept of the ICare2Work app to the International Center for Autism Research and Education (ICare4Autism) team.
BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, December 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — In response to ICare4Autism’s 2018 U.S. Congressional Auditorium National Apprenticeship Conference to initiate the national apprenticeship program for high school students, ICare4Autism awarded Primal Logic & Data Corp. (primal.) in Charleston, South Carolina, the contract to deliver a user-friendly tool to improve the mapping of apprenticeship and employment opportunities known as ICare2Work. A first-of-its-kind proof-of-concept was presented to ICare4Autism on Tuesday, December 15th.
During Tuesday’s demo, the team, led by primal.’s founder and chairman Noah Leask, presented a landing page for the app, as well as a demonstration of their data collection process, using the nation’s largest job-board for individuals with disabilities, disABLEDperson.com, as well as national apprenticeship resources for people with ASD as their database. They then proceeded to show how they are creating specific categories for people on the autism spectrum, sorting through the data and effectively selecting only the opportunities most suited for individuals with ASD.
“We couldn’t be happier to see our vision finally taking shape at the capable hands of .primal, led by Noah and his team,” said Dr. Joshua Weinstein, founder and CEO of ICare4Autism. “There is a real problem out there, 90% of adults with ASD are unemployed, and not because of their disability. Our app will give them all the resources they need to succeed and join the workforce.”
The next step for ICare2Work is a Minimum Viable Product, which will include more robust data sets as well as user-profile capabilities. The team is also gearing up to pilot their youth apprenticeship program and unique profile system for the Tri-county School District’s guidance counselors, to promote apprenticeship opportunities at Trident Technical College in their hometown of Charleston, South Carolina. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the youth apprenticeships have been put on hold and resume again in February of 2021.
“We are elated to be partnering with ICare4Autism to deliver the ICare2Work application Minimal Viable Product (MVP),” said Daniel Stern, primal.’s CEO. “We have a passion for solving challenging problems and helping others…this will help the special needs community nationally once fully delivered, then internationally.”
ICare4Autism is seeking investors and partners to help champion this new technological tool created to promote employment and apprenticeship opportunities for individuals on the Autism Spectrum. 100% of your donation will play a vital role in maximizing the impact of this national movement.
