The National Autistic Society has recently launched Finding work , a job searching and work preparation handbook for employers and autistic people (including those with Asperger syndrome). Available from the NAS online shop.
The handbook contains practical modules on good working practice for professionals, understanding autism, choosing a suitable role, applying for roles, interviews, finding work experience, communication and social skills, managing anxiety and preparing for the workplace.
This guide produced by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development is for HR professionals and leaders across functions who want to learn more about neurodiversity, the benefits for their organisation, and how they can support neurodivergent people to be comfortable and successful at work.
