Amazing and Really Shocking Facts About Adults with Autism (UK):

  • just 15% have a full-time job
  • one-third are currently without a job or access to benefits
  • 79% of those on Incapacity Benefit want to work
  • Adults with Aspergers or on the Autistic Spectrum or any adults that have any other Communication difficulty disorder are alarmingly being unfairly treated and managed. Employers, employees, social support services such as actual benefit centres are failing them. The failure of the Government and Government Institutes to understand their needs, when it comes to empoyment and benefits if they cannot work, needs to be addressed.

    • Adults with Autism need to work
    • They need to have a job when they can work
    • Receive benefits when they can’t work
    • And a government that can help achive this and lead the way.
