Up to 85% of the Asperger's population are without full-time employment, though many have above-average intelligence. Rudy 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 Asperger's find and keep gainful employment.

Rudy's candid advice is based on her personal experiences and the experiences of over fifty adults with Asperger's from all over the world, in addition to their employers and numerous experts in the field. Detailed lists provide balanced guidelines for success, while Rudy's "Interview Tips" and "Personal Job Map" tools will help Aspergians, young or old, find their employment niche. There is more to a job than what the tasks are: from social blunders, to sensory issues, to bullying by coworkers, Simone presents solutions to difficult challenges. Readers will be enriched, enlightened, and ready to worktogether!

Reviews

"This is a most timely book! I'm pleased to see someone finally write about the incredible value of employees with Asperger's Syndrome (they're wonderful employees). Based on her typical, thorough research and documentation, author Rudy Simone shows us how people with Asperger's and their employers can find mutual success in the workplace. This book is THE guide for how people on the spectrum can find jobs and succeed. It's MUST reading for employers, teachers, and those with Asperger's looking for work." –Craig Evans, Founder of AutismHangout.com

"If I had read this book when I was in my twenties, I could have avoided many problems with coworkers. I truly believe that this book will help individuals on the autism spectrum get, and keep, the fulfilling jobs that they deserve." –Temple Grandin, Ph.D., world-famous autism expert and author of The Way I See It: A Personal Look at Autism and Asperger's"
