Working with your workplace

Being assertive without being an ass can be difficult for those on the Spectrum. And even when people are generally supportive of accommodating autism in the workplace they may not understand the request or have a general suspicion of all employees (being in HR does that to you). One useful resource is the Ask JAN (Job Accommodation Network) series from the US Department of Labor. They have a specific presentation just on Aspergers in the Workplace that can server as guidance for the next tension fraught conversation about why you need noise canceling headphones or really do not want to go to a meeting.
