There are several challenges and barriers that people with autism face as they enter the world of work, including communication challenges, behavioral issues, cognitive difficulties, and an employment environment that doesn’t always understand the supports people with autism need to enhance their work performance. People with co-morbid conditions or who are more cognitively challenged face even more barriers to employment (Hendricks, 2010).

Some of these are:

  • Getting around their community and using public transportation
  • Understanding directions
  • Asking for help
  • Knowing when to take breaks and/or lunch
  • Learning and responding to body language
