Whether you are running a small business or larger corporation, you need to consider that some employees may have disabilities that make it difficult to perform in normal workplace environments. Employees living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) often have special talents and gifts that make them exceptional employees. The Society for Human Resource Management points out, “Many people on the autism spectrum have exceptional visual, musical and academic skills. About 40 percent have average to above-average intellectual abilities.” A few simple changes to the work environment may be all it takes to accommodate these employees. Doing so can help them feel valued and encourage them to excel at their jobs while letting their skills really shine.

The way a culture responds to those with intellectual and developmental disabilities is shaped, in large part, by how disabilities and illnesses are portrayed in popular culture. Books and movies that feature characters grappling with their humanity through the lens of intellectual challenges and mental illness are uniquely positioned to help battle lingering stigmas.

Michelle Obama’s glamorous wardrobe often generates sales for the designers she wears. Case in point, at the president’s most recent State of the Union address, the first lady’s marigold Narciso Rodriguez dress sold out almost immediately.
But it’s not just Ms. Obama’s fashion choices driving public interest. Upon her visit to the White House on August 2, Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s wife Ho Ching sported a funky dinosaur clutch. The item, designed by 19-year-old Seetoh Sheng Jie, also sold out in a matter of days.

For individuals with Autism, theme parks can be the definition of overstimulation. Loud noises, large crowds, and screaming strangers can grate on anyone’s patience, but for autistic individuals it can be much worse. Unfortunately, most theme parks aren’t equipped to accommodate guests that feel overwhelmed by roller-coaster rattling and cotton candy crowds. Southern park Dollywood, as of recently, is an exception to this oversight.

The autism spectrum has typically been visually represented as a linear progression, with “not autistic” on one end, and “very autistic” on the other. The problem with this understanding of the spectrum is that it oversimplifies a complex medical condition and does not account for the myriad complexities in human brain processing. Autism is a spectrum as diverse as the rainbow, and it’s about time we had a more holistic representation of the many ways it can affect individuals.
