Abstract

This research is based on supported employment programmes that are focused solely on people with autism (also known as autism spectrum disorder or ASD) and what these programmes are doing to support them. I will be discussing in this section what autism is and how certain characteristics of autism can cause struggles if they are unsupported in the workplace. As part of this literature review, I am going to identify problems that are evident in Ireland around the issue of high unemployment in people with autism spectrum disorder. The main area of focus in this paper will be examining the reasons of the high level of unemployment in the autism community and how supported employment programs are addressing this issue. The methodology section which will be made up of philosophical assumptions based on opinions, aims and objectives on the topic of employment programmes and information on the research question. The analysis and finding section will include a discussion on government policies within Ireland and abroad.
