Heather Ash's curator insight, March 1, 1:21 AM

There are different levels of functioning on the autism spectrum. There are many who function well enough to get a job but so much emphasis is placed on social interaction that many people with ASD get looked over for jobs and more attention is paid to their weaknesses than their strengths. This program seeks to uncover the individual's strengths and find their niche. The article also made a great point about not just training the employee but the employer too. Employers may not realize that certain interactions, like sarcasm, may not register with their autistic employees. Employers need to be trained on how their autistic associates communicate and understand. Counselors can get involved in the community by helping companies establish these types of job-training programs.

Great article about how parents of autistic children need to care for themselves as well. Parents who are too stressed may not provide the proper care for their autistic child (think: burnout!). The benefits of parents getting respite care, better training, engaging in their own hobbies, and practicing mindfulness are necessary not only for the well-being of the parent but of the child as well. As counselors we will be speaking to many parents and I believe that this is an important message for all of them.

Great article about not forgetting to involve the siblings of people with austism. Personally, I believe I could have benefited a great deal if I had been involved with my brother's therapists when we found out he had Aspergers. I believe he and my parents could have benefited as well because I would have been able to provide more assistance since I have 9 years older than my brother and was very involved in his childhood. On the other side, my sister, who is 1 year younger than my brother, has lived with him more than I have and has been there for all his difficult moments. She needs help coping with his disability as well. Siblings play a huge role in the lives of their disabled brothers and sisters and will be around long after the parents are gone. As counselors, we need to remember the siblings and make sure they are involved, taught, and heard.
