Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders
Employing an Aspergic presents a whole new set of challenges but the benefits can be tremendous. You want employee loyalty? You got it. You want precision, honesty, punctuality, dedication? You got it" (p.57). The positive qualities that he describes of Aspergic employees are qualities that can positively impact a corporation's profits. The high unemployment rates among the AS population harms not only the individuals involved, but society as a whole. This book provides a practical guide and personnal testemonies to help address this pressing issue.
Good Autism Practice
I would strongly recommend this series for: adults with AS, their family and friends, service providers, employment services, career advisors and companies employing or looking to employ individuals with AS and other professionals supporting people with AS in adult life.
This is essential reading for adults with AS, their family and friends, employment services and career advisers, and companies needing to know how, in practical terms, to accommodate employees with AS.
Escalate - The Higher Education Academy
Perhaps the most important aspect of this volume is that it lays out just how the demands of the modern workplace affect people with AS in a clear way for those who don't and explains why this group of workers and jobseekers frind them especially daunting.
Sound advice for others with AS, as well as those involved with them socially, interpersonally or as employers or colleagues. Extremely readable and highly informative.
A practical and insightful read, this is a must have for those people with Aspergers who have no idea what options are open to them. The book will guide each person through the relative stages of applying for a job, through to surviving their day to day environments in a society which is still quite ignorant about what A.S. is.
