Summary "The authors review the high unemployment rates among adults with autism and other neurodiverse conditions more than two decades after the Americans with Disabilities Act ... "The autism job club" is a vital resource for adults with autism, their families, and advocates who are committed to neurodiverse employment, not unemployment. But it will also speak to a far broader audience interested in how to carve out a place for themselves or others in an increasingly competitive job world."--Jacket.
