3.0 étoiles sur 5 Nothing Especially Insigthful 3 février 2015
Par Willie Thornley - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Helpful, but has much the same information that other job/career finding books have. Dress well, keep clean, and don't overreact to stressful situations. If you like numbers and have a hard time getting along with people, be an accountant, etc. If you have poor social skills, gravitate towards work that does not require extensive people skills. This book provided some good examples with several first hand accounts of what worked for successful Aspies. I've tried many of the suggestions in the book such as letting people know I don't have strong people skills, but it rarely works. If the employer matches skills to jobs, you don't need this book to facilitate that. If the employer wants to force ill-matched people to certain jobs, nothing is going to change that.

While this was geared toward folks in the Aspberger's realm, it didn't provide much more than what similar books provide. Yes, it is a good book, but it is nothing special. Recommended, but not highly recommended.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 As a parent of an Asperger teen, this book was confirming and enlightening 23 février 2006
Par J. M. Lynch - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
As a parent of a teenager with Aspergers, alot of Ms. Gradin's recommendations confirmed what I already thought: sell the skills not the personality, go into areas where your interests/fixations lie and consider working as a consultant in your area of expertise. Finding recommendations I already thought of didn't make me feel like those parts of the book were a waste. On the contrary, it is nice to have affirmation from an outside source, particularly one intimately knowledgable of autism.

Other recommendations she makes were new to me. I had not thought of them, but they make alot of sense. She encourages people to go out and interview people in their field of choice to learn what they can about the industry. For neurotypical people, this would be akin to networking. For autistics, it is couched in a manner far easier for them to manage. People on the autism spectrum are probably not going to be good at social networking. But they would be very good at the interviews she recommends. She takes classic job networking and reworks it into research. I know my son LOVES researching more information on his interests, but digs in his heels at the thought of socializing.

Ms. Gradin also discusses the different styles of learning/thinking and which jobs are good for those type of people. My son happens to have amazing visual spatial abilities and is currently taking CAD in high school where he is getting straight A's. He now wants to become an architect which is exactly one of the fields Ms. Gradin reommends for visual spatial people on the spectrum.

Other beneficial feature of the book are the list of sources for information, examples of people in a wide selection of fields and Temple Gradin's personal observances.

I'm greatful to Ms. Gradin for writing books on autism. As hard as I try to understand my son, the fact that my brain is wired differently then his means I will always approach him with a bias, unintentional or otherwise. Her books clarify and explain things I could ponder for years and still not quite grasp.

I would also highly recommend her Animals In Translation book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "Making the Most of Asperger's ASD" 2 février 2008
Par Russell A. Rohde MD - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
"Developing Talents: Careers for Individuals with Asperger Syndrome and High-Functioning Autism", by Temple Grandin and Kate Duffy. APC(Autism Asperger Publishing Co.), KS 2004. ISBN 1-93-1282-56-0 Pbk. 140/153 pages includes 5 pgs. Ref., and Append. 3 pgs., 6 pgs. Disclosure, & 9 pgs. Job tips and development. Some charts, no illustrations. 9" x 6".

A carefully written and documented treatise on practical methods to nurture, acquire and maintain employment of individuals with ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorders) and especial reference to those having Asperger's Syndrome, i.e., a high or higher-functioning level of autism either with or without specific talents. The authors have particular first-hand knowledge of ASD by either being affected or children with autistic traits.

So, yes, this is a "how to" book that should prove to be an important informational guide on structuring realistic avenues that can lead to eventual employment in the workforce, clearly pointing out the need for early intervention (parents), focusing on development of talents into marketable skills and managing the environmental and social factors that may be devastating to those potentially employable ASDs using mentors whenever possible.

The writers have skillfully outlined the many basic problems encountered in ASD together with mitigating means to overcome such difficulties. In ASD there is a neurological disability which often is manifest via magnitude, separation, and response of the various sense modalities (touch, taste, sound, visual). This imbalance and admixture or crossing-over of sensory modalities is associated with frustrations, anger, withdrawal, and distraction from mild stimuli such as fluorescent light flickering, roughness of clothing, strong scents and includes avoidance of eye contact, crowds, and careless grooming, etc. Using "white noise", gum chewing, exercise, soft clothing, incandescent bulbs, tinted glasses, "counting to 10" and counseling can do wonders. Using networking, hobbies, portfolio creation, and focusing on improving enjoyed skills can lead to successful employment.

The appendix briefly covers the ADA of 1990 and many available resources. Authors point out many of the computer nerds or geeks are believed to have Asperger, that many have exceptional skills to contribute to society as a whole, the caveat being that their societal integration faces many pitfalls which can be avoided or cushioned, and these are succinctly spelled out in this manual. With statistics revealing that upwards of 1 in 166 children are currently diagnosed with ASD, it is a certainty you will undoubtedly encounter many of them in the schools, workplace, gatherings, and etc., ergo this guide is helpful for all.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Decent for an emerging professional 10 août 2010
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
As a recent college graduate with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), this book gave me some really good advice about how to get into a career through the 'back-door.' Though I do reasonably well during interviews, the suggestion to supplement an interview with a portfolio was very useful because I can include a link to it on my thank-you emails to interviewers. This way, they have another way to gauge my work rather than relying on what I say or do not say. I thought the worksheets for the informational interviews were helpful along with the chart mapping out special challenges of ASD in the workplace and how one would cope with them. Recognizing my limitations in the workplace and coping with them has helped me be more productive in my current work environment.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 For those who are worried about the future of their children with Aspberger's. 15 décembre 2013

If you have an Aspbergers. or work with one, this is a good read. You must think a bit differently, and utilize their existing gifts, which they most definitely have, to encourage and steer into a productive direction. Just because they have a label, doesn't mean they can't have a productive, enjoyable life, but they must learn skills, esp. social. This is a good place to start to see the potential of many ppl. Personally, i wish they would stop calling ppl that are different, tends to promote victimhood, instead of resourcefulness and victory...
