Career Planning for Autistic Youths – Aquaponics

Urban agriculture will be the future trend of the world’s food supply chain, and the symbiosis of fish and vegetables is not only the development direction of modern science and technology agriculture, but also an excellent environmental protection ecosystem. Compared with traditional soil farming agriculture, it is more methodical and modular, making SEN/autistic youth easier to master and operate.

Many families with autistic children are worried about the future of their children as it is very difficult to find suitable jobs for them. LoveXpress’s newest program, “Career Planning for Autistic Youths – Aquaponics” train and help SEN or autistic youths equip themselves with the technical and operational skills of aquaponics farming and related work fields to equip them for future employment opportunities.
