Autism and Work
Work is an important part of life – it provides financial security, social connection and builds our self-esteem.
Autistic people face many barriers to finding and maintaining employment. In Australia, the unemployment rate for autistic people is 31% – almost six times that of people without disability. This year, Spectrospective is highlighting employment to build understanding about autism and work, and showcase the skills, strengths and ambitions autistic people bring to the workforce.
