Autism in the Work Force

For children and young adults with autism, the battle everyday is to live a life that is as normal as possible.  Last month was National Disability Employment Awareness Month.  During this time, businesses of all sizes focus on employment opportunities of all kinds for people with autism.  Dr. Paul Wehman, Director of the Virginia Commonwealth University Rehabilitation Research and Training Center wrote an article about the Community’s Connections with the employment of people with autism.  He states that with the right intensity,  support, and level of work, people with autism can work all different types of jobs.  You can read the article at this link:

One Response to Autism in the Work Force

  1. I think addressing the issue of autism in the workforce is a completely important issue. A relative of mine has autism and is highly functional in society – no where near the assumed level of autistic intelligence. I think that by addressing sources who prove that autism is not a disabling issue is a very important to society that doesn’t really understand the problem.
