ABOUT SMART LIVING, LEARNING & EARNING WITH AUTISM (SLLEA)
Smart Living, Learning & Earning with Autism (SLLEA) was founded as a human services pilot program in 2014 to help adults with autism achieve and maintain meaningful independence in their lives. In 2015, SLLEA was formed as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. In 2016, we began full program operations as a licensed Oregon Medicaid provider agency, offering a 10-month intensive training program focused on independent living. Our comprehensive program of autism-specific direct supports, skills training, social coaching, and use of self-management technology is carefully designed to foster sustained personal growth and self-confidence across three pivotal adult transition areas: independent living, higher education, and meaningful employment.
Our nonprofit is made up of a human services team of amazingly passionate, empathetic people. They work hard to help our students learn the skills they need to succeed so we, in turn, do everything we can to help our team succeed too. That's why we offer competitive pay and a flexible work schedule along with paid professional development and training programs.
