As Simone puts it “Employers should not lose a valuable employee over things that can be fixed Nor should a person with AS leave a job they love for the wrong reason”

Epub Ò Aspergers on the Job î Rudy Simone

Up to 85% of the Asperger's population are without full time employment though many have above average intelligenceRudy Simone an adult with Asperger's Syndrome and an accomplished author consultant and musician created this insightful resource to help employers educators and therapists accommodate this growing population and to help people with As someone with high functioning autism who is hoping to transition into the workplace soon I was hoping for a book which would give me some practical advice about working particularly how to handle the social side of thingsIn all honesty the only thing this book does well is point out every single possible issue you will encounter in the workplace and how likely it is you will fail at integrating There are a lot of uotes from people on the spectrum who are in the workplace and barring only a few exceptions they all spoke of bad experiences I understand that there is a need to point out the issues surrounding work but what Simone fails to do is provide solutions to this problem The chapters are typically formatted to have a list at the end of the chapter telling someone on the spectrum what they can do to overcome a particular issue I found that many of the things she points out are highly obvious such as practice projecting confidence and there was little to no solid advice about how to execute these tipsI initially thought that while this book didn't meet my level of functioning I wouldn't rate it too harshly as it may meet the needs of someone who was lower on the spectrum than myself However I don't think I would even recommend this book to someone who would have of a need for this book because some of the advice is ridiculous For example in one chapter Simone suggests that if you have light sensory issues and the lights at your workplace are too bright you should wear a hat indoors Unless you're working in a workplace where you've openly labelled yourself as being on the spectrum and arguably even then wearing a hat indoors is not going to do you any favours
