Asperger's on the Job

This title addresses a very significant challenge in the American workforce. Over 1.5 million people are affected by autism or Asperger's Syndrome (AS) and this population is entering the workforce unprepared, clashing with unprepared coworkers.  Author Rudy Simone surveyed people with AS and their employers to provide solutions for employees with AS, and their parents, educators, and coworkers. Although people with Asperger's Syndrome (a mild form of autism) are often highly intelligent, it is thought that over 85 per cent are without full-time employment. That is an outrageously high percentage. This book is a resource to help employers, educators, and therapists accommodate this growing population, and to help people with AS find and keep gainful employment. Simone looks into all aspects of employment - because there is more to a job than what the tasks are. From social blunders, to perfectionism, to bullying by coworkers, Simone presents solutions to difficult challenges. Readers will be enriched, enlightened, and ready to work - together.
