Description

This book is for parents and professionals who are guiding adolescents and young adult children with high functioning autism or Asperger’s toward employment and independence.

Employers are looking for employees who are positive. Employers may list specific "hard" or technical skills that they want an employee to have for a particular job, but surveys show that employers most want to hire people who have positive "soft skills." Employers want to hire someone who can work in harmony with others, someone who can communicate and respond socially to customers, coworkers, and supervisors with positivity. Unfortunately for young people with autism/Asperger’s, hard skills may come easily but soft skills are much more difficult to learn and use. This book will help you focus on your child’s positivity in their interactions with others, and will help you guide him or her to respond positively to the many challenges he or she faces every day.

Very practical approach to guiding young adults with autism on the social skills necessary to be successfully employed. The use of worksheets and exercises to teach and reinforce 'soft skills' has been proven to be a highly effective method for many people with ASD. I believe some of the concepts introduced on positivity in the workforce can also be translated to personal skills in general. Thank you.

I work with individuals diagnosed with ASD and this book is a very important and fantastic resource to help them know what direction to take. Thank you for allowing me a chance to read this book.

This book is amazingly realistic and highlights the challenges that those with autism face in the workforce and ways to assist them. I work with autistic middle school students and have wondered how they will do when they are out in the work world. This book has been a very helpful resource as to what their future can be and how I can help them get there!
