Do you have a story to share about yourself, or a loved one, or a student you know on the autism spectrum who is having a hard time finding or keeping a job? What are the challenges to getting and staying employed you have experienced?
My son, Jeremy, is writing a paper on the barriers to employment for someone with autism including Asperger’s Syndrome. He is looking for more personal stories to illustrate his paper. Please, could you share your experience by writing it in a comment to this blog? You may stay anonymous if you wish.
In A Full Life with Autism, we wrote about employment among other topics and shared some practical and empowering advice from different sources. Here, Jeremy is researching more about the barriers people have encountered.
Please leave your stories, and pass this along to others who may have an experience to share.
Thank you for taking the time, and Jeremy will write a blog here when the paper is finished.
