Autism spectrum disorders pose daily challenges to those who are diagnosed. In the workforce young adults with autism may face more adversity when seeking employment than those who are not diagnosed on the autism spectrum. This research sought out to find if traditional interviewing methods pose more of a barrier to success with people on the autism spectrum. The research included a survey that was issued to a sample population to identify the specific interviewing challenges. The researcher utilized survey data to detect the specific barriers young adults with autism face in professional job interviews. Based on results of the research specific challenges in the interview process were identified. Tools and strategies to overcome some difficulties were suggested.
