Posted: June 2, 2017
This week’s guest on GrowthMinded Milwaukee is Mark Fairbanks, co-founder of Islands of Brilliance. Islands of Brilliance is a learning experience developed specifically for children and young adults on the autism spectrum.
On this episode of GMMKE, host Todd McLees sits down with Mark to recap how Islands of Brilliance got its start and the ways the program has grown over the last decade. Mark also shares some of the incredible discoveries they’ve made along the way about a percentage of kids on the autism spectrum, like their ability to be extremely productive as graphic designers, web designers, and software developers, and what that could mean for the regional economy.
