Hi, I'm Craig Kendall, the author of The Asperger's Syndrome
Survival Guide. In today's issue we will discuss...
Making Autism an Asset
A Danish software company benefits from its workers' distinctive talents.
Those with autism or Asperger's syndrome struggle to both find and KEEP jobs. The primary challenge
is often not their competence but the lack of social skills that prevents a person on the autism
spectrum from succeeding in the work place.
Even getting through the job interview can be difficult. Not looking a potential employer in
the eye can give a signal that you have something to hide or simple make your potential employer
uncomfortable. Office politics, the endless chatting around the water cooler -- all of these
may seem foreign to those with ASD but understanding the unwritten rules of the office are important.
Luckily, some firms are beginning to realize just how valuable an employee with autism can be.
