This book is the first volume in the Emerald Studies in Workplace Neurodiversity Series, in which scholars, practitioners and educators share their research on autism in the workplace.
Here, they focus on how to smooth the transition from educational settings into the workplace for “Generation A” – the half-million people with autism who will reach adulthood in the next decade, eager to work and to achieve positive outcomes for themselves and their employers.
Often considered a disability or disorder, autism has an associated stigma, which this collection aims to reduce, while facilitating integration in practical ways. It will be a valuable resource for individuals with ASD, organizations interested in obtaining the benefits of hiring autistic people, and advocacy groups.
