Supports for Work

What accommodations might an autistic person want at work? No two autistic people are alike, and they may need different supports (I prefer this word over accommodations). For myself, I need support around calm lighting, prescheduled breaks (this includes fifteens), and clearly stated instructions and expectations. Social supports would also be a great contribution to a healthy worklife, i.e. an unbiased, confidential mentor who can listen to an autistic person’s social concerns and give calculated advice on how to navigate the social network of the workplace.
