There are now two Uniquely Abled Academies (UAA) in Northwest PA and they are enrolling students for their fall cohorts.

UAA is a CNC machinist training program to create career opportunities for young adults with high-functioning autism by matching unique abilities with high-demand jobs. Through community partnerships with educators, agencies, and manufacturers, the end goals are to provide skills and career readiness to an unrealized population of capable individuals and to address workforce needs of manufacturers. Upon completion of training, the program seeks to match math- and computer-savvy young adults with autism to careers as Computer Numerical Control (CNC) operators at local manufacturing companies.
