Research: Supervising Employees with Autism
In this study, the supervisors of 14 successfully employed individuals with autism were interviewed. These interviews, along with worksite observations, were used to examine their supervisory practices and perceptions of employees with autism. The findings indicated that the supervisor’s overall assessment of the job performance of the employees was extremely positive. This article also identifies supervisory accommodation strategies that were commonly associated with successful supervision.
