Can You Work if You Have Autism?

While we have had many discussions about helping children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), there is a significant gap in the conversation, namely how adults with ASD manage, especially when it comes to employment. How do they find their place in life as productive, working members of society? We hear from Michael Carley, a speaker, author and consultant who was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder as an adult; as well as Dr Choy Sook Kuen representing both Autism Initiatives Malaysia and Entrepreneurs’ Organisation Malaysia.
