Asperger's on the Job

Author(s): Rudy Simone

Up to 85% of the Asperger's population are without full-time employment, though many have above-average intelligence.

Rudy Simone, an adult with Asperger's Syndrome and an accomplished author, consultant, and musician, created this insightful resource to help employers, educators, and therapists accommodate this growing population, and to help people with Asperger’s find and keep gainful employment.

Rudy's candid advice is based on her personal experiences and the experiences of over 50 adults with Asperger's from all over the world, in addition to their employers and numerous experts in the field.

Detailed lists of "what the employee can do" and "to employers and advocates" provide balanced guidelines for success, while Rudy's "Interview Tips" and "Personal Job Map" tools will help Aspergians, young or old, find their employment niche.

There is more to a job than what the tasks are: from social blunders, to sensory issues, to bullying by coworkers, Simone presents solutions to difficult challenges. Readers will be enriched, enlightened, and ready to work—together!

"I bought your book for myself. Right away bought another one to share with my employers. I was happily surprised that they indeed read it and my work life has taken a change for the better. I find I'm getting more understanding and helpful communication since giving them the book. In my personal life it has helped as well.
I find it to have so many good ideas for daily ease of life, due to so many situations 'in life' like being 'on the job.' I now tell people, when I wear my favorite 'Superman' shirt or baseball hat (which I do all the time) that they are my 'SuperASontheJob' clothing now. Your book has given me more 'super' strength than most others out there have. I have even put a mention of it on my personal website.
I want everyone I know to read this book and intend on buying copies anytime I need a 'gift' to give to someone whom I just know it will help! Thank you for such a great new step forward in my life."

"I've found this book the best thing out there because it goes into the thinking process of the job seeker/employee, as well as confronts the stereotypes, prejudices, and mindsets of managers, vocational rehabilitation counselors and job coaches, and other career specialists. This is what sets it aside and gives it some legs."

Roger N. Meyer, author of The Asperger Syndrome Employment Workbook

"It is a brilliant book. I like very much the practical approach to provide
understanding and meet expectations from both sides---the employee and the employer. That's what it is all about."

Thorkil Sonne, Founder of Specialisterne and Specialist People Foundation

"Asperger’s on the Job is a good book for potential employees to read, but it's
essential for employers. A wonderful achievement."

Michael John Carley, Executive Director of GRASP

"This is a most timely book! … This book is THE guide for how people on the spectrum can find jobs and succeed."

Craig Evans, founder of

"If I had read this book when I was in my twenties, I could have avoided many problems with coworkers. I truly believe that this book will help individuals on the autism spectrum get, and keep, the fulfilling jobs that they deserve."
