Who knows better about developing the talents of those with ASD than Temple Grandin? This updated and expanded edition of Developing Talents: Careers for Individuals With Asperger Syndrome and High-Functioning Autism considers the continuing dismal employment statistics for individuals with ASD. The authors take an in-depth look at entrepreneurship. Using real-life examples, they point out that many of the unique characteristics of individuals on the autism spectrum lend themselves well to entrepreneurial ventures.

The book explores many unnoticed aspects of vocational rehabilitation programs that provide job training and placement for people with disabilities, as well as Social Security Administration programs that offer vocational assistance. Employment figures and prospects have been updated, and new jobs have been added that are well suited for those on the spectrum. Foreword by Tony Attwood, PhD.

Description

DEVELOPING TALENTS: CAREERS FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH ASPERGER’S SYNDROME AND HIGH-FUNCTIONING AUTISM
AUTHOR(S): TEMPLE GRANDIN, KATE DUFFY

“This is Temple Grandin’s most practical and generous work yet. She offers so very much of herself and her real life experiences. Kate Duffy’s compassion, empathy and positive attitude pervade the very fiber of this book. The guidelines and suggestions are clear, creative and useful in real-life application. The many specific examples of real people with AS in their careers are invaluable, especially to the AS population. While the book was written for people with AS, it is an essential work for anyone who cares for, teaches, employs or works with someone on the spectrum. It will go to the top of my recommended reading list!” –Sue Moreno, founder and president, Maap Services Inc.
