A variety of different industries and jobs are explored to encourage teens to begin to think about careers that might appeal to them and suit their skills and interests. Full of practical information, engaging activities, funny illustrations and inspiring personal stories, this book gives Asperteens a positive image of what people on the autism spectrum can achieve and is an essential career guidance aid for parents, teachers and other autism professionals working with young adults.
