Title: Developing Talents: Careers for Individuals with Asperger Syndrome and High-Functioning Autism
Authors: Temple Grandin and Kate Duffy
Forward by: Tony Atwood
Spectrum Strategies will choose a new book each month for our book of the month club. This month, we’ve chosen Developing Talents. This book will be extremely helpful to individuals with Asperger Syndrome or high-functioning autism, and extremely valuable to parents and others who work with young adults on the spectrum.
Temple Grandin takes her own personal experiences and identifies what kind of knowledge and practical advice was needed to share with other young adults on the spectrum. In addition, this book covers all of the different steps that come with the employment process, such as matching up the individuals strengths with the appropriate career and helping them through the entire process.
This book is invaluable for teachers, employers or anyone that works with someone on the spectrum.
