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. Over 85 per cent of people with AS are without full-time employment, and the United States is spending almost $90 billion annually for autism treatment and research. 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.

Based on her typical, thorough research and documentation, author Rudy Simone shows us how people with Asperger's and their employers can find mutual success in the workplace. This book is THE guide for how people on the spectrum can find jobs and succeed. It's MUST reading for employers, teachers, and those with Asperger's looking for work."
