GEORG has got lots of friends.

These friends are helping GEORG:

  • Some of the friends support the Kiosk GEORG by giving money.



GEORG is run by Work-aut.

The word Work-aut is pronounced like this: «Work» as you know it in English, and «aut» as the English «out».


Work-aut supports people with autism in different realms:

Therefore, Work-aut searches for a suitable kind of work.


Work-aut follows two goals:

  • People with autism should live as independently as possible.

                    All people can benefit from GEORG:

                    No matter if they are disabled or not.


GEORG is accessible for wheelchairs.

Furthermore, at the kiosk GEORG, photos or symbols label all products.


Symbols are simple pictures.

Can’t a customer read?

Or can’t a customer talk?

If not, the customer can point at the symbol.

In this way, the employees of GEORG can understand the customer.

GEORG is at the top station of the Mühlegg cable car.

This is a good place.

Because here are many people passing by.


The Mühlegg cable car connects the old city of St. Gallen to the Drei Weiern.

Drei Weiern is the name of a destination for outings in St. Georgen.

There are many people at Drei Weiern for leisure.

At the Drei Wiern, people have different options, for instance:

  • going for a walk

  • in the summertime: bathing

  • in the winter: tobogganing

GEORG is a particular kiosk:

Because people with autism work at the kiosk GEORG.

Autism is an impairment.

People with autism are called autists.


Autists have a particular kind of perception.

This means:

  • Autists feel different from people without autism.

  • Autists hear different from people without autism.

  • Autists smell different from people without autism.

  • Autists think different from people without autism.


Autists are very good at some things.

At some things, autists are even better than other people are.

But there are things autists are not so good at.

Sometimes, autists behave different from other people.

This is why many autists do not have a job.


The kiosk GEORG helps people with autism.

GEORG asks:

          What is a person good at?

For instance:

          Hanna is good at mathematics.

          This is why Hanna is working at the cash register.


          Paul is tidy and well organized.

          This is why Paul is responsible for the stock.

          Paul is filling the shelves.

          Further, Paul checks for instance:

  • Are there enough beverages left?

Is anything missing?
