The few times that I’ve mentioned that I’m self-employed in ASD settings, I’ve gotten lots of questions. Do I like it? How did I start my own business? What are the drawbacks? I’ve written a short series to answer these questions and talk a bit about the pluses and minuses of being your own boss when you’re on the spectrum.
Although the four parts that make up this series are focused on self-employment or freelancing, I think some of the information about identifying strengths and challenges is applicable in any employment setting, so hopefully those of you who aren’t interested in the self-employment aspect will still find something useful here.
