Book: Developing Talents: Careers for Individuals with Asperger’s Syndrome and High-functioning Autism by Temple Grandin and Kate Duffy
This book is intended to be a career planning aid for young adults on the autism spectrum and their families, teachers, and counselors. The authors provide information and advice based on their own personal employment experiences. This book introduces step-by-step processes young adults can use when searching for a job, as well as discusses how workers with ASD can manage sensory problems in the work place. Other key topics include how to nurture and turn talents and special interests that people may have into paid work positions, and jobs that may be particularly suited to individuals with ASD.
