I’m hoping some of you will consider research as a path to potential careers for Aspergers adults.   #deskresearch   #highfunctinoingautism   #Aspegersinadults   #careeers  

What are your thoughts?  Do you think many high functioning autism/Aspergers adults could do well as researchers?

Definitely yes! Lots of scientists and engineers have an Asperger type personality. The obstacles are harder now than they used to be because of changes in the workplace and elsewhere.

I listened to +Chris Ducker  talk on the +EntrepreneurOnFire  on  about the future of work.  More and more work will be done virtually, he contends, over the next five to ten years.

I hope people on the autism spectrum can harness this upcoming work trend.  Given the sensory and interpersonal challenges that autistics face, working from home may offer increased opportunities in the world of work.

Also mentioned in this article : +Pat Flynn , +John Elder Robison +musingsofanaspie and others.  I'd love to also hear from +adultswithautism  and +Creating a Future for Adults with Autism about your thoughts about #howtoworkfromhome  .  And by the way, +Leslie Samuel , I do think that blogging is a way for #adultswithAspergers   to change the world, so I believe your products are very relevant to them :)

Most of us, if left to our whimsy, could conjure up a pretty impressive list of adventures to attempt before we kick the bucket. In the film "The Bucket List" two men were able to check items off their life's to-do list that most of us can only fantasize about. That's because Jack Nicholson's character was rich enough to grant both his and Morgan Freeman's wishes. However, extravagant experiences don't have to cost a fortune.

Good relationships require a good amount of communication. For example, if you're going to be home late, your significant other may want to know. You may also lose track of time during these circumstances, so let your smartphone remember for you.

Adam Young, one of many famous people with Asperger’s,  is a  prolific song writer and musician who broke onto the American music scene in April 2007.

He says he’s got Asperger’s syndrome.

It’s hard to judge whether this is 100% true, since other blog writers say he was just joking when he said it.

But I have reasons to believe he might really have Aspergers.
