about this item

Author Janine Booth, a trade union representative and co-chair of the TUC Disabled Workers’ Committee, examines discrimination against autistic people in the workplace and calls for changes in the workplace to accommodate workers with autism. She presents statistics on such discrimination, then challenges myths regarding autism and work and looks at types of barriers in the workplace, such as getting and keeping a job, communication and social interaction on the job, trouble with managers, sensory issues, and harassment. She suggests ideas for removing barriers in the workplace, such as legislation surrounding ‘reasonable adjustments’ and ‘reasonable accommodations.’ She also offers an overview of relevant laws in the English-speaking world.
