Business for Aspies: 42 Best Practices for Using Asperger Syndrome Traits at Work Successfully
Authors: Ashley Stanford
This book is written to people with Asperger's syndrome and to employers. The following is adapted from the publisher's website:
- "Following the DSM system and an easy to use format, Ashley Stanford addresses all of the issues that can arise once a person with AS secures employment, through the eyes of both employee and employer."
- "Describing what might be expected of any employee, she offers helpful tips and workarounds not only to enable AS individuals achieve their fullest potential, but to take advantage of their strengths."
- "In a positive and upbeat tone, she shows that with the right supports and strategies, it is possible to overcome the day-to-day challenges that trip up even the most savvy Aspie, including negotiating pay rises, employer/employee relationships, team meetings, career advancement, and choosing when to take vacation time."
The book was reviewed by Joseph Thompson on the website "ForeWord Reviews", here is the conclusion:
"The accessibility of Business for Aspies is a testament to Stanford's sixteen years as a technical writer. After each behavior, she offers a series of "best practice." Ostensibly addressing the Aspie employee, the practices not only manage the specific behavior but also identify its inherent strengths to the employer. In the aforementioned "lack of social or emotional reciprocity," Stanford empowers the Aspie worker as she shifts the focus from office friendships to professional deportment. By maintaining a professional distance from colleagues, the employee limits stressful interactions while the employer has found a potential management candidate.
That is the big takeaway of Business for Aspies. Rather than suggesting ways to fit in, Stanford cuts through the social trappings to find the best employees: ones who get the job done."
