Prejudice and Misunderstanding Plague Neurodiverse People’s
[W]orkplaces must design inclusively, and account for the fact that many of their employees are neurodivergent. Whether they know it or not. As many as 1 in 5 people are neurodivergent. Yet, 76% don’t feel comfortable disclosing their neurodiversity at work…. According to research from The Institute of Leadership & Management, half of leaders and managers would not employ a neurodivergent person. From negative stigma, to non-inclusive recruitment processes, there’s many barriers preventing this transition into work. (Abby Corrigan, texthelp.com)

Why Asperger Works?
It is our hope that through our efforts, the Greater Boston area and Southern New Hampshire will become a model of tolerance that will be replicated through the country and will promote adults with AS so that they may be able to live productive lives, fully employed, without fear of discriminatory behavior from employers, fellow employees, and/or the general public.
Asperger Works is being recognized for your valued commitment to servicing the needs of adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder and for providing employment-related services and valued training.
