Product Overview

This book is for parents and professionals who are guiding adolescents and young adult children with high functioning autism or Asperger's toward employment and independence.

Employers are looking for employees who are positive. Employers may list specific ""hard"" or technical skills that they want an employee to have for a particular job, but surveys show that employers most want to hire people who have positive ""soft skills."" Employers want to hire someone who can work in harmony with others, someone who can communicate and respond socially to customers, coworkers, and supervisors with positivity. Unfortunately for young people with autism/Asperger's, hard skills may come easily but soft skills are much more difficult to learn and use. This book will help you focus on your child's positivity in their interactions with others, and will help you guide him or her to respond positively to the many challenges he or she faces every day.
