Product Description

Review

"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

Format: Paperback
I found this book well-organized and convincing; every chapter includes realistic information and useful pieces of advice and requests for HR staff members and employers. Since the author herself has Asperger's(AS), I suppose she understands quite well how hard it is for Aspergians(people with Asperger's Syndrome) to find their suitable jobs. And at the same time, I realized something in common between Asperger's on the Job and Asperger's Syndrome & Employment written by Sarah Hendrickx. Both of them includes lots of experiences Aspergians have been through. Not all of them are negative, but I think the most challenging or difficult thing Aspergians have faced is socializing because I know most Aspergians suffer from chronic unemployment all over the world. Most Aspergians have found it extremely tough to put up with flexibility, change, noisy environments, and subtlety which NTs(neurotypical people) can cope with. And the striking difference between NTs and Aspergians is likely to widen the gap. By showing us specific examples of AS, I would say both Rudy Simone and Sarah Hendrickx tried so hard to convey AS point of view to employers and HR staff. Let me put it this way; their books are a lot more satisfying than typical job hunting guides. For NTs, job hunting guides sold everywhere will do, while they won't always be helpful for Aspergians. Therefore, Asperger's on the Job is a must read to prevent ignorance, misunderstanding and prejudice against Aspergians. A whole bunch of employers still aren't aware enough of Asperger's, that's why.

I chose the rating I did, because, so far during my read, I've enjoyed reading the book. It's an education on what I may have to do to be able to continue to be gainfully employed or self-employed throughout most of my professional career.

I do not consider this book to be a must have advice book- all of it is common knowledge and American centred
