explain why it is important to recognise that each individual on the autistic spectrum has
their own individual abilities, needs, strengths, preferences and interests
It has been known for decades that individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), including those with significant impairment or who have behaviors that others find challenging, can work when they are given appropriate supports. [ [ It is also clear that individuals with ASD can benefit from employment. Benefits include improved emotional state, greater financial gain, decreased anxiety,
greater self-esteem, and greater independence. Nonetheless, employment outcomes for individuals with ASD have traditionally been poor; Even those who do find work are often underemployed or do not hold onto jobs for a long period of time. ] ]
