Not everyone can work in a regular office. The unspoken rules, the expectations, the impressions, practically everything can cause problems for someone with autism.
Auticon is a company whose mission is to employ people with autism. The majority of their staff has autism. Their founder has a son with autism and saw the need for a workplace for people like him. So he started it. They specialize in testing software, something people with autism often are considered good at. The workspace takes special care of their employees needs. You aren’t expected to be social if you don't want to. You can be sick for longer periods than other companies would tolerate. They understand your productivity can go up and down.
I think these types of businesses will be more common in the future. Lots of people don't conform to the general norms and they still need work and occupation.
Do you know of any other companies like this?
