Square holes for square pegs: Current practice in employment and autism By Daniel Wiles, Disability Consultant

Here’s the opening paragraph: People with autism think and behave differently to others and employers must recognise the need to make them feel comfortable. In essence, employers need to be prepared to make adjustments for employees with autism, instead of attempting to force a ‘square peg into a round hole’. It is possible to create a square hole for a square peg: a workplace willing to shape itself around a person will enable the person to be productive. Workplaces are shaped by the working environment, organisational culture and open communication. Workplaces that accept difference, such as the difference presented by autism, can benefit hugely from adapting to allow people to fit in.

I recommend this well written report.
