Requesting Title: Developing Talents - Careers for Individuals with Asperger Sy ndrome and High-Functioning Autism
Author: Grandin, Temple; Duffy, Kate
Published: 2008
Summary:
In this updated and expanded edition, the authors take an in-depth look at a growing area of the US economy: entrepreneurship. Using real-life examples, they point out that many of the unique characteristics of individuals on the autism spectrum lend themselves well to entrepreneurial ventures. The book also explores many often unnoticed aspects of Vocational Rehabilitation programs that provide job training and placement for people with disabilities as well as Social Security Administration programs that offer vocational assistance. Finally, employment figures and prospects have been updated and new jobs have been added that are particularly well suited for those on the spectrum, resulting in the most current look at the employment prospects for individuals with Asperger Syndrome and high-functioning autism.
