Thank you all for your replies. The point is that I read a blog that the father of an autistic child runs. Autism level 3, severe/low-functioning autism Joe90, yes I read it, don't be that pessimistic. ;) After reading his blog, I felt ashamed that I dare think about writing my blog. My life is stra...

Hi, everybody! I want to discuss the different forms of autism within the spectrum. Let's take two opposite poles: Aspies (as I am one) and severe, non-verbal autism. I think people with severe, non-verbal autism struggle a lot. On the other side, I do not face significant problems with "my&quo...

Hi, starkid,
yes of course. But choose any condition you like and write about the advantages. About the disadvantages, there is enough information available. I want to collect some information about the advantages. ;)

Frankly, my organization has benefited from my employment with them. I became very skilled at the particular tasks I was assigned. I exhibited odd behaviors at times—but I was rather indispensable, so I wasn’t fired. I’ve been at my job 40 straight years. Hi kraftiekortie, that sounds interesting. ...

...And since society prioritizes profits above anything else... It is not the main topic in that thread, but nevertheless, that prioritization on money is probably a major problem in many fields. Of course, vast monocultures produce more profit for the individual farmer. But if you take the society...

The only reason I see is that ND person is most likely easier to scam and abuse, therefore, cheaper. NO, NO, NO! That is not the kind of argument that I am interested in, sorry. I am talking about advantages. Being cheap is not an advantage. :( The real question should be: Which kind of surrounding...

Hi, I would like to discuss the positive aspects of persons that are neurodiverse. Therefore I would like the members of the forum to post their ideas on why somebody should hire a neurodiverse person. What is your opinion? Yes, I know. Some autists can be very good programmers. ;) But besides that?...

If we had a better-organized autistic community, including a variety of career-oriented groups for people in specific categories of professions/occupations/jobs, this would make it easier for us to organize into teams that could go into business as teams rather than as individual freelancers.

Could you explain it a little more clearly? I will try by giving you an example. I am a web designer/ programmer. I like to write code and work with photoshop. I am quite good in these fields.
