This practical manual will enable people diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome and high functioning autism to deepen their self-understanding and appreciate their value as working individuals. Through step-by-step self assessment, the reader is encouraged to engage actively in a self-paced exploration of their employment history, and ultimately to identify the work best suited to their personal needs, talents and strengths. The workbook contains practical exercises, with clear explanations and examples of how to use them. It leads the reader to identify and explore such things as: their interests, skills and talents, and their application to work and their style of learning and style of work. It also examines the social skills required by specific jobs and the AS characteristics which further and impede work performance. Finally, the book looks at the issues surrounding diagnosis and disclosure that affects life at work and outside it; and creative problem solving for the present and the future.
