Daniel Landry


Daniel Landry, who has Asperger's syndrome, works at Harris Teeter and the Autism Society in Asheville, NC. He also leads a local Asperger's social support group called Asperger's United.


Originally, he received services at the Autism Society, but then started working there. He helps provide respite care, skill support training and job training for other individuals living with intellectual or other developmental disabilities. This has provided Daniel a way to give back.


At Harris Teeter, where he works as a cashier and a customer service support provider, he has received Employee of the Month and continues to receive praise from his colleagues for his progress.


Since Daniel enjoys helping people, he launched Asperger's United for individuals with Asperger's to provide a safe and comfortable way for members to meet and socialize with others.


He hopes to continue to further his career at Harris Teeter and to grow Asperger's United throughout western North Carolina.
