Finding work is a major problem for autistic people. While we have a great many strengths employers ought to find of great benefit, the fact of the matter is that our social differences are often too difficult for neurotypicals to overcome. This wouldn’t be so much of a problem except that most of the businesses are run by neurotypicals, so their deficits in dealing with social differences are a problem for us.
Fortunately a few businesses are recognizing there are benefits to hiring autistic employees. Of course, many of them, including Microsoft, are simply using the fact that autistics are particularly good at coding and computers in general. It would be nice if other opportunities would open up for those of us who are educated in areas other than computers, though.
