Portada
Jessica Kingsley Publishers, 2004 - 336 páginas
Most people with Non-Verbal Learning Disorder (NLD) or Asperger Syndrome (AS) are underemployed. This book sets out to change this. With practical and technical advice on everything from job hunting to interview techniques, from 'fitting in' in the workplace to whether or not to disclose a diagnosis, this book guides people with NLD or AS successfully through the employment mine field. There is also information for employers, agencies and careers counsellors on AS and NLD as 'invisible' disabilities, including an analysis of the typical strengths of somebody with NLD or AS, and how to use these positively in the workplace. Practical information and lists of career resources are supported by numerous case studies to inspire and advise. An essential resource for people with NLD or AS seeking or in employment and their existing or potential employers.

Outstanding book. I am so encouraged and moved by the facts and the stories that I will be starting a blog to advocate for people with NLD. My daughter has the syndrome and as I help her I want to help others. It is such a misunderstood disorder due to the lack of education. Thank you for writing this book
