Video DVD - Asperger Syndrome At Work

by: Coulter Videos


Concept:

This DVD presents strategies for dealing with all kinds of workplace challenges. It is interesting, straightforward and practical and give a wonderful look at Supported Employment. The program features interviews with six successful employees with Asperger Syndrome and their supervisors, coworkers and job coaches. It focuses on tips and techniques for job seekers with Asperger Syndrome. The program features a separate section to show potential employers the advantages of hiring someone with Asperger Syndrome.

Description:

This DVD contains two programs:
FOR JOB SEEKERS: Employees with Asperger Syndrome and their supervisors, co-workers and job coaches reveal their secrets to getting and keeping a job. The program covers job coaching, personal assessments, choosing careers based on interests and strengths, applying, interviewing, disclosure, supports, accommodations, interacting with bosses and coworkers, and modifying behaviors.
FOR POTENTIAL EMPLOYERS: The interviewees in the job seeker video describe the benefits of hiring employees with Asperger Syndrome and the accommodations that make them as productive — or more productive — than their coworkers.

We are introduced to six adults with AS who are working in diverse occupations, including a veterinarian’s assistant and a library page. Both the employees with AS and their supervisors comment on workplace skills, living accommodations, interpersonal relations, and the job search interview. Most interesting are the candid discussions about coping mechanisms people with AS use in order to be successful in the workplace. This excellent film would make a valuable reference tool with its well-designed menu that allows viewers to jump to specific sections. Strongly recommended for all public and business libraries; may be used successfully by both employees and employers.

Reviews:

“Asperger Syndrome at Work” is superb! I love the straightforward and practical presentations for job-seekers and for employers. The assets of individuals with AS are realistically balanced with the accommodations needed for success. References to TEACCH and other state agencies show that supported employment can actually happen. You have summarized our current understanding of “…Teresa Bolick, Ph.D, Psychologist and Author
