The number of adults with Asperger Syndrome retaining full-time employment is extremely low in comparison to those who may be considered to have more limiting conditions and disabilities. This book identifies why this is the case by asking the individuals concerned what is stopping them from working.Looking at expectations, motivations, working conditions and other factors, Sarah Hendrickx explores the reasons why work just doesn’t work for many people with Asperger Syndrome and how to resolve these issues. Featuring personal stories from those with AS, the book highlights successful scenarios and provides suggestions for both employers and those in search of work on how to improve employment for the benefit of everyone.”Asperger Syndrome and Employment” provides essential information for those making the decisions and acknowledges what people with AS really want from a job so they can make employment work for them.

This is exactly what I have wanted! The author reveals what Aspergians(people with Asperger Syndrome) want. 90% of the opinions of them in this book impact on me a great deal because it makes me realize how hard they struggle in order to survive at work or find their suitable jobs. Even today many Aspergians remain chronically unemployed or underachieved at work mainly because of social misfits they face. In this respect, I suppose the author meet the Aspergians’ needs. Moreover, the author shows us how to get a suitable job as well as understandings of the reality Aspergians face. That’s completely different from typical job hunting guides that really tire me a lot! Overall, I’m satisfied with her well-organized and practical approach to employment.

I know some Aspergians have never lost their jobs, but I believe this book is instructive even for them. And they might find some traits indicated there could apply to them. If they grasp what is written, they could realize what they hadn’t before!By edrm
