April is Autism Awareness month and for one Currajong Disability Services client it is indeed a time for celebration.
For as long as he can remember, Kyal Sauer always wanted to work with trucks.
It is not just a hobby, trucks are Kyal’s passion and he managed to achieve his goal off his own plate, a major achievement for someone living with autism.
Kyal just landed his dream job at Wallace’s in Forbes and he couldn’t be happier! “I have always wanted to get into the truck industry and be around heavy machinery,” said Kyal.
“I love everything about trucks. I am so happy I got this job so I can learn more,” Kyal said.
For Kyal, who also lives in Forbes, it is an added bonus to be working so close to home.
“It’s a short drive to work at Wallace Bulk Haulage, which is good. Everyone there is great and very supportive,” he said.
Kyal goes to work twice a week on Wednesdays and Fridays, and he is in part responsible for the upkeep and cleaning of the trucks.
“I get to make sure the trucks are roadworthy and in good nick,” Kyal said.
“It’s an important job and someone has to do it.
“I’d do it all day every day if I could!”
