Developing Talents; Careers for Individuals with Asperger Syndrome and High-Functioning Autism


Categories: , .

Product Description

This career planning guide is written specifically for high-functioning adolescents and young adults on the autism spectrum, their families,
teachers, and counselors. The two authors weave together a unique blend of information and advice based on personal experiences. Temple
Grandin draws from her own experience with autism spectrum disorders and her professional career, and Kate Duffy uses her expertise on
employment issues and as the mother of two teenagers with autistic-like behaviors. The result is an extremely useful and practical book that
introduces step-by-step processes for the job search with a major section on the impact ASD has in the workplace, including managing sensory
problems, how to nurture and turn talents and special interests into paid work, jobs that are particularly suited to individuals on the spectrum,
and much more. First-hand accounts of job experiences and advice from individuals representing a broad range of careers particularly
suited for high-functioning individuals on the autism spectrum round off this exciting new resource
