Although written as a guide for employers to assist their recruitment and management of people with Asperger syndrome, it is instructive in best practice in the employment of people with a disability, writes Maureen Cook.
A concise read with a practical structure and examples of good practice, it allows employers to read from cover to cover or dip into it for reference and guidance. It demonstrates that employing disabled people does not require specialist skills and experience but sound management with support for employer and employee.
This is a useful tool to influence and guide work with employers in the whole employment process or in relation to specific issues.
