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

more likely to succeed in roles featuring lots of consistent routine, consistent social interactions and well-defined tasks.

  • Create accessible work environments: Employers can make small adaptations to the workplace that can make a huge difference for people with autism and improve employment opportunities. For example, people with autism often understand written instructions better than verbal instructions, so employers can provide typed directions, rather than just saying them.

    "Making workplaces better for adults with autism often does not require major changes," Standifer said. "Usually, what makes a workplace better for people with disabilities makes the workplace better for everyone."

    Standifer is working on a "job supports toolkit" to help identify how people with autism could fulfill various roles in the workplace. He has organized the annual Autism Works National Conference to bring together advocates and innovators in employment of adults with autism. Standifer said he foresees the development of an index of options and techniques that vocational rehabilitation professionals and their clients can use to brainstorm more effectively about each person's individual needs.
