1. Employment Issues And Asperger’s
Employment is a big issue with adults who have Asperger’s. In order to be independent in our society, one usually needs a job. A lot of adults with Asperger’s want to be independent and live on their own, but to do so they need to be able to pay the bills. And that means getting a job.
Adults with Asperger’s are usually very intelligent and capable people, but they need a compatible environment for them to be able to thrive. What they need is usually not compatible with what most work places require. They need control of their environment; co-workers talking, snapping gum, or playing the radio can drive them to distraction. The lights may be too dim or too bright; perfumes or other smells may be bothersome; and in general, there may be too much sensory stimuli in a typical workplace environment to screen out.
Then there is office politics, which is something most adults with Asperger’s have problems with, and getting along with others in general. Jobs that require working with the public have their own problems. And even getting past the interview to get the job can be a problem. This is all very frustrating to the adult with Asperger’s who just wants to prove that he can make it on his own and feel like he is contributing something to society.
