Easing into the Workplace

Stability is something that almost everyone craves, especially individuals on the spectrum. So what do we do when job security is one of the hardest things for autistic people to pin down? How to we stay balanced when our finances are out of order? And how do we manage a career when our biggest fears don’t revolve around job training but things like workplace bullying and social blunders? Baby steps. Jumping straight from school to a career, from sick leave to full-time work, or from quiet nights to haphazard 9 to 5s may not be sustainable for the majority of autistic people. Try easing into a job. Apply for part-time work in a calmer or less social environment. Grow accustomed to the workplace, and after time passes, then apply for a full-time position as it becomes available.
