When autism can be a plus

Shirley S. Wang, WSJ, Mar 28, 2014, says some employers are seeking out people on the autism scale for certain positions.

With 85% of people with autism unemployed, this is good.

People with autism spectrum disorder, characterized by social deficits and repetitive behavior tend to pay better attention to detail.

People with autism often go step by step, don't skip details. They also don't take a lot of time chitchatting and socializing.

Often the computer and number crunching are strong areas.

Who is hiring? The business software company SAP, for one.
