Neurodiversity in the Workplace places and supports people with Autism in high-level jobs for which they are qualified, but could not previously access. This initiative has led the process of identifying, training, and supporting neurodiverse individuals for numerous organizations over the past five years, created a structure that has been implemented within these organizations, and successfully placed people with Autism into career-focused positions.
For people with disabilities, finding a job is hard, and finding a full-time job is even harder. A recent study by the Bureau of Labor Statistics found that 83.2 % of people with disabilities were unemployed. Many job seekers with Autism have the skills to perform well, but are rarely afforded the chance due to difficulty managing the traditional interview process. Social interaction, formal question and answer sessions, and other traditional practices may be challenging for a person with Autism.
