    Autism discrimination

    My wife is in a group for spouses of people with Asperger's. One of the moderators of the group, in addition to having a husband on the spectrum, has a son with non-verbal autism. Her neighbor has continually harassed her and told her to lock her child in a shed. I'm sharing the link to her...

    I recently had my ability to ask questions or post reviews on Amazon terminated due to “unusual activity.” The only thing unusual about my activity is the fact that I am Autistic and focus very intensely on what I’m looking at or searching for.

    Do you need to have informed your employer of your disability (UK)

    If someone is harassed/discriminated at work on the basis of "poor people skills" or something similar, and has later (within a few months) been diagnosed with Aspergers, is the harassment/discrimination still considered unlawful? Would the condition have had to be diagnosed and disclosed...

    Institutional Employment Discrimination

    Employment Discrimination Hey, guess what's grinding my gears today? The issue of unemployment in the autism community, as well as the issue of employment in the autism community. Both are problematic, and as with most things it's an institutional problem. The figure I hear is 90% unemployment...
