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?

      Yes, my parents raised me to be polite to everyone..that, and just practice over the years.

    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?
