The number of adults with Asperger Syndrome retaining full-time
employment is extremely low in comparison to those who may be considered
to have more limiting conditions and disabilities. This book identifies
why this is the case by asking the individuals concerned what they find
difficult about working.
Looking at expectations, motivations,
working conditions and other factors, Sarah Hendrickx explores the
reasons why work just doesn't work for many people with Asperger
Syndrome and how to resolve these issues. Featuring personal stories
from those with AS, the book highlights successful scenarios and
provides suggestions for both employers and those in search of work on
how to improve employment for the benefit of everyone.
Syndrome and Employment provides essential information for those making
the decisions and acknowledges what people with AS really want from a
job so they can make employment work for them.
