This updated and expanded edition considers the continuing dismal employment statistics for individuals with ASD. Using real-life examples, many of the unique characteristics of autism spectrum are shown how they lend themselves well to entrepreneurial ventures. The book explores many unnoticed aspects of Vocational Rehabilitation programs that provide job training and placement for people with disabilities, as well as Social Security Administration programs that offer vocational assistance. Employment figures and prospects have been updated, and new jobs have been added that are well suited for those on the spectrum.
