Even though i've shown to my employer I can do the work efficiently and have been able to communicate effectively within a team of around 4 people, I still struggle with the skills needed to further my confidence in moving forward with my career even though it's a dead end job. I can pretend all I w...

I'd only advocate using social media as a tool for employability or starting a business if the business you're starting is based around technology like certain tech support channels on youtube for instance (dunno if u heard of linus tech tips) if that's what you were going for. Anything else I would...

I think you can do it in terms of the opposite, 'how do i deal with feeling included?', only then do i realise it feels weird, awkward, walking with someone at the same pace feels strange and uneasy and always self-conscious of what they expect me to do next, should i split off and do my own thing o...

Seems to be the going trend right now for people, disability or not, to be employed in warehouses because it requires such little skill and you are able to pass as a normal person if you keep your head down and do the work. In my case however it would seem this is the only form of work i'll be able ...

Or a chance for people at work to gloat about their fortunate circumstances (or unfortunate whatever the case may be) with the partner of their desires, towards myself who is quite evident to be alone in this pursuit. They are of course free to ask me if they so wish, to be my valentine, if that is ...

I've lurked on here long enough to say i don't consider myself to be on the spectrum even though half my family thinks i am and its not something easily forgotten when next i visit them, but relieved that it never comes up in conversation directly or indirectly. I considered myself very introverted ...

I too have pondered the thought of being in the same job long term, though only having been in it for a few months, mastered the few menial tasks that it comes with: manual handling, repetitive tasks, and it's always the same unlike an office or software development job where style of programming mi...

It probably paved the way for autism, without the director or even the film, autism may have been represented in a whole different way, although savant syndrome could have been represented better as a separate diagnosis, instead of grouping them in the same room, he could have been a lone adult with...

I started looking them (girl at work) up online desperately in an attempt to find out if they were with someone, harder than it sounds when they have no social media or are under an alias but then again it is weird to do stuff like that, a bit like what a stalker would do and i wouldn't put myself i...
