Researcher identifies autism employment resources, tips for people with autism spectrum disorders
Date:10/12/2011

COLUMBIA, Mo. Statistics show that the number of people diagnosed with autism has increased steadily over the past 30 years resulting in a surge in the number of adults with autism graduating from high school. However, preliminary employment studies indicate that this population may earn less and be employed at a lower rate compared to other people with disabilities. Now, an autism expert at the University of Missouri is identifying employment resources that are available for people with autism and steps employers can take to improve the workplace and hiring process for this population.

"Despite the increase in diagnoses of autism in children, we know very little about autism in adults," said Scott Standifer, clinical associate professor in the School of Health Professions. "Often, people don't consider how children with autism will grow up and function outside of school. It is important to find ways for this population to be successful in the work environment."

Recently, Standifer released the "Fact Sheet on Autism Employment," which includes information and statistics about the adult autism community, organizations addressing autism employment and resources on workplace accommodations for autism.

Although people with autism often have trouble finding employment, Standifer said there are a number of resources that are available. He provides the following recommendations and tips to assist job seekers and employers:

  • Use state vocational rehabilitation counselors: One resource that has seen a recent increase in use is state vocational rehabilitation programs. Vocational rehabilitation counselors work with adults with disabilities, including autism, to find career-oriented, competitive paying jobs in their local communities. However, Standifer believes that many in the autism community are unaware of state vocational rehabilitation services.
