Autistic Society in employment drive

The National Autistic Society has launched a campaign to get more people with autism into work.

The charity has sent 600 Undiscovered Workforce information packs to companies, highlighting how employers can benefit from hiring people with different types of autistic spectrum disorders. The pack points out that people with autism tend to be reliable, accurate, able to maintain concentration for long periods, good at spotting errors, and have excellent memories.

The pack also guides employers through the reasonable workplace adjustments for autistic workers that became mandatory on 1 October under part three of the Disability Discrimination Act.

A resource pack for unemployed people with autistic spectrum disorders is also available.
