How do disabled adults learn to cope?
I'm not severely disabled. I have slight autism,
(Asperger's syndrome). It doesn't mean I'm
stupid, it means I have poor listening and
communication skills. I learn by reading, not
by listening...and employers don't like that at all.
1) There must be something I can
do to work online or work from home?
2) As for time-management, that's really
hard for me. I get worn out working
more than 30 hours/week. I think working
full-time and taking one night-class would
be a huge-step up (let alone two). I know
that's not a lot for most people, but it is for me.
3) The other problem is: I'm so dam-
indecisive. I don't know how to pick
a career on my own. My strengths are:
mathematics, healing/medicine, working
with nature and animals plus customer-service.

Employers don't need to know about your Asperger's. My grandson was diagnosed with it in high school and he has just graduated with a medical degree

My sister has aspergers and she can not work she can not communicate with people so working is really hard for her. Have you tried working from home? Or doing something that does not involve other people.

I'm curious about a strength being customer service, though Asperger's impacts your listening and communication skills. Did simple practice of doing it on the job help improve it in that regard?
Like anyone, lean on your strengths. If you're good with math, have you considered being a math tutor?

Some just do, and some just don't. You sure embrace that label, don't you?

Ok. That's nice. Perhaps you should do some RESEARCH. Are you aware that you are in the 'POLITICS' section of Yahoo Answers?
