This is a link to a unique employment agency in the UK. It is an IT consulting firm that specializes in placing people with Asperger's Syndrome. And if there is one, there must be more employment agencies that are Asperger Friendly.

Just asking.

My experience is that it's a bit of a strange organisation that isn't particularly useful. It seems to want to be a very small low profile outfit operating only in one area. Most people in the AS community I have met have never heard of it. Allegedly there is an uneasy relationship between this organisation and the more recently founded Asperger Technical which I am involved with.

I realize this is a very old thread, but I wonder if it can be updated?

I desperately need to find employment and I'm hoping someone out there knows of any employers I can start with so I don't waste my time and theirs by applying to situations that will not work out for me.
