Pennsylvania Autism Services Hope to Make Inroads in Workplace

HAMPTON, Pa. -- Patrick Lah is good at his job as a janitor at the local Giant Eagle.
But he doesn't know his supervisor's name, he isn't sure how to ask for days off and, even if he wanted to be promoted, he would say he's perfectly happy with his current job.
As an adult with autism, Lah, 23, is stuck in a Catch-22. He wants to work and be involved in his community, but he's having trouble accessing social services that would provide him with behavioral counseling and job training he needs to succeed.
