Working with Asperger's syndrome

Since my son was recently referred for tests to see if he has Asperger's syndrome I've been keen to find out more about this increasingly common form of autism.

As I teach and research a range of things related to the working and employment environment I've also taken the time to find out how people with Asperger's syndrome cope with work - and how employers cope with employing people with Asperger's.

So far I've only come across one good source - Employing people with Asperger syndrome: a practical guide by Martha Fausset.

I was therefore heartened to find article in Saturday's Guardian called Special intelligence (Sabina Dosani).

The article speaks to a range of employers who employ people with Asperger's syndrome. The article is very positive and contains a range of advice for people who either have the condition or have to deal with people who have the condition in the workplace.

It may sound horrible, but these syndromes are technological scams, that one (including myself sometimes) just can't avoid being controlled by.
It can be explained as being some sort of telepathic control of the brain.
Or more precisely: think of the brain as a computer that suddenly is remote-controlled.
At least when one is not affected by neurological spasms, it is possible to work, if one can find a job.
I saw one block with beautiful creations by a bearer of this scam-disease, it is just that this art is so hard to turn into money.
(How to become a rich painter ? for instance) ...
Good luck !
