EMPLOYMENT AND WORK

Index

 

 

     I can't remember ever not worrying about what's wrong with me and work.  With my AS diagnosis eight years ago, I've come up with some answers not only for myself, but others in the same predicament.  When I wrote Asperger Symdrome Employment Workbook (2001), it was the first book-length, serious study of adult AS employment.  Fortunately, my book has been followed by the writing and presentations of others, namely Temple Grandin, Gail Hawkins, Malcolm Johnson, and Stephen Shore.  There are many authors who touch more than incidentally on "our" issues with income and survival in the world of work, the most notable recent example being Barbara Jacobs in her absolutely right on book Loving Mr. Spock (2003).

 

     Here are a few of the many articles I've written covering this essential adult issue.  More are on the way.  Each title in the list below is a link to the article.  Click anywhere on the title and your browser will take you there.
