First-person accounts from off the beaten track, as told to Anne Ford

“I am the autism specialist at Aspiritech. We’re a nonprofit software-testing company in Highland Park, and we hire adults with high-functioning autism and Asperger’s syndrome. There’s a case study suggesting that they are more efficient at software testing than neurotypicals, because of their ability to focus and recognize details. We’re the only company like this in the United States, as far as I know.
