    How Autism Can Help You Land a Job - Wall Street Journal

    Some employers increasingly are viewing autism as an asset and not a deficiency in the workplace.

    Germany-based software company SAP has been actively seeking people with autism for jobs, not because of charitable outreach but because it believes features of autism may make some individuals better at certain jobs than those without autism.

    It's a worthy initiative, according to disability experts, since 85% of adults with autism are estimated to be unemployed.
