notes from Keynote Monday August 23 Autism@Work Vritual Summit
My scientifical mind just classify it as a different brain and different needs, but society still have a long walk through it, specially eliminating the word disorder.
Decoding Autism and Leading the Way to Successful Inclusion
More professionals on the autism spectrum are taught in general settings today than ever before, bringing an array of notable strengths and skills that add intriguing new dimensions to workplace. But these professionals also present challenges that are broader, deeper, and more intractable than those of their typically developing peers. Because leading professionals on the autism spectrum in an inclusive environment complicates the work, leaders must be prepared to provide knowledgeable, mindful leadership.
Great to tune into the Employer Panel at this years Autism@Work Summit to hear experiences of how orgs have navigated and continued programs for employees with autism during COVID-19.
