Our employers find the unique qualities of a person with autism can make for an exceptional addition to their workplace:
Extreme reliability, a strong work ethic, honesty, focused effort, logical thinking, greater attention to details, and an exceptional ability to memorize are just a few of the traits of an individual with autism, which make for an excellent employee.
Individuals with autism excel at following directions, going step-by-step without becoming bored or skipping details when a task becomes routine. They are loyal, dependable employees who have an affinity for structured environments and precise outcomes.
There’s a lot of pride and camaraderie that comes with observing and helping a co-worker with a disability to achieve their goals—and, evidence shows that employees experience a more gratifying and productive workplace as a result. Make that your workplace!
