[Source: The ASHA Leader Blog]
For a young adult with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), the social and behavioral intricacies of getting a job can be daunting. And once they find a job and successfully navigate the interview process, staying employed can present new challenges. Negative work experiences range from lack of tolerance, problems with social interactions—co-workers often don’t recognize social norms as challenges for their peers with ASD—and limited time to learn new tasks. These issues can lead to short employment stints for people with autism.
