Availability: Ready to download

The Autism Job Club is a groundbreaking book for bringing adults with autism and other neuro-diverse conditions into the work world. The book has its basis in the autism job club that the authors have been part of in the San Francisco Bay Area, the job-creation and job-placement efforts the club has undertaken, and similar efforts throughout the United States. The authors r The Autism Job Club is a groundbreaking book for bringing adults with autism and other neuro-diverse conditions into the work world. The book has its basis in the autism job club that the authors have been part of in the San Francisco Bay Area, the job-creation and job-placement efforts the club has undertaken, and similar efforts throughout the United States. The authors review the high unemployment rates among adults with autism and other neuro- diverse conditions more than two decades after the ADA. National data on autism employment and unemployment with the individual employment searches of job club members. Bernick and Holden also outline and explain six strategies that, taken together, will reshape employment for adults with autism: *The art of the autism job coach. *The autism advantage in technology employment. *Autism employment and the internet economy. *Autism employment and the practical/craft economy. *Autism and extra-governmental job networks. *Autism and public service employment. The Autism Job Club will be a vital resource for adults with autism, their families, and advocates who are committed to neuro-diverse employment, not unemployment. But it will also speak to a far broader audience interested in how to carve out a place for themselves or others in an increasingly competitive job world.

    Had some good information, but most of the information was about employment in general. I'd say only about 10% of the book is actually geared at gainful employment for adults with autism, but ending each chapter with a paragraph about how the information in the chapter applies to autism. And frankly, it's a lot of "no crap" information, like networking. Yes, of course, networking will help anyone and everyone gain employment...

    I should have bought this book instead of checking it out from the library. I took pages of notes. The authors talk about current job trends, and then specifically apply them to autism job seekers. As a parent of a young adult on the spectrum, I feel better prepared for what he/we are facing. It is not all rosy with tidy recommendations, but I am more clear-eyed and focused in my thinking. A lot of out of the box ideas are presented. As a parent, I thought the book was great.

I think my son would not have been able to wade through reading it himself.

    This book provided a good overview about the difficulties that people with autism encounter when finding and maintaining employment. Currently, I am a job developer for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and hoped to discover new strategies to help me find employment for my people. It was a solid read, but it didn't give me any strategies that were different from what I've already tried.

    Tries to cover everyone who falls under the autism umbrella in a book that is short on substance. There are good ideas that help get one's mind working, but there aren't many breakthroughs. Reads more like a progress report for the job organizations mentioned in the book.

    Dry as a bone, and really pertaining more to employment in general with a sprinkling of autism anecdotes. But maybe interesting for someone with less knowledge of the topic.
