Tech Companies Lead The Way In Hiring People With Autism

Neurodiversity and Tech Jobs:  The Critical Role of Training for Success:

Worldwide, 80 percent of people with autism are unemployed or underemployed.   The rate of employment for those with autism is lower than for those with other disabilities. (see page 48 of this extensive report.)  Therefore,  finding, connecting with and employing neurodiverse individuals is an important opportunity for them, society and employers.

We all know that practicing how one will perform in different situations and on different tasks in a job is critical for success.  Training is a way to ensure that required tasks, conduct and ways to perform at work, whether on teams and on projects, is a key factor for on-going job success.  Practice and training must be refined and continue throughout the evolution of neurodiversity in the workplace – both for employers, managers, teams and individuals.
