Reviews

This is the first book I have seen that addresses the unwritten rules of the workplace. It will help educators and employers understand the social-cognitive challenges that people with autism spectrum conditions face in their everyday lives. As a parent of a young man with autism who struggles to understand social experiences, I especially appreciate having a framework for how to support him in overcoming his social-cognitive challenges, especially in the workplace. This book should be part of the school/college curriculum for young adults with autism and should be used by parents, educators, vocational rehabilitation professionals, job coaches, job mentors, and employers. --Geraldine Graydon, MSc, University College Dublin; advocate, mentor, and co-founder of Autism Rights & Equality Alliance, IrelandThis is a great book for people with autism spectrum disorders who are either looking for a job or trying to survive in one. The focus on the hidden curriculum is spot-on: it's the unwritten rules and unsuspected behaviours that so often trip people up in the workplace. This book will guide you through the minefield. --David Perkins, head of services, National Autistic Society (NAS) Prospects, UK
