Young Adults With Autism Can Thrive In High-Tech Jobs

As read in NPR. I have always heard that ASD children typically thrive in a certain area of expertise. Either they are amazing at remembering baseball facts, information about the planets, or can memorize every dog breed; I have tried to find something my children excel at. Not only for them to gain knowledge, but to gain a sense of worth. I want them to know they are good at something. Don’t we want that for our kids regardless of if they have special needs or not? I know personally that I wish I was great or amazing at one thing. Something that made me feel comfortable around. Instead I still feel like I’m searching for what I want to be and do when I grow up. So I was excited to read this article regarding a area where ASD children seem to thrive.
