My First Book About Autism, Release Date, Preorders and More!

I have finished my book about autism and I am set to release it May 31st. I am using Gumroad to publish the book. You can preorder your copy now! If you use the code 'wired differently,' you will get 1 dollar off. The book is 2.99. With the code I provided for you, you will get the book for 1.99.

I wore this book to educate others on how we struggle with employment. Imagine posting on Facebook about needing money for something you want and some jerk says 'get a job you lazy ***'
Don't you wish they knew it wasn't that simple for you? Don't you wish they knew you can't find or hold a job due to your autism? This book explains some reasons why we struggle to find or keep a job. You may see this is as negative. You have to point out the problem to find a solution, right? I do have a proposal that I feel will fix our issue. You have to know why you want to make a change.
Promo video will be up on my channel Aaliyah Holt.

This book can help the following
  • Anyone who works with autistic kids, it's important to know that it will be tough for them to find or keep a job so you can better assist them. Most schools have job programs. 
  • Parents of aspie kids/teens/adults. 
  • Anyone who wants to learn about autism
  • Students who have to write a report on a disorder. 
  • Your friends. This can help your friends to better understand you. 
  • Special education teachers. While you want to prepare kids for the adult world, they will have a great deal of trouble with finding a job.  
If you want to know what change you want to make, you have to know what you want. 
If you want to wait for the release of the book, that is fine. The book was written, proofread and published by me.
The cover was made by this person.

Jobs For Adults With Autism

Just got fired from your 12, 20th etc job? Or are you just out of your luck and can't find any jobs that fit your needs. I will be explaining some jobs I feel are right for adults with autism that you can probably do remotely. This is my opinion but everyone is different and will have different skills. I did research for this blog post. I always to research before covering certain topics.

Sometimes 'real world' jobs are not for us. They are built the around neurotypical force. Remember that NTs don't have the issues that we have. We are sometimes forced to accommodate the Nts and that is not right. This article talks about the jobs that I feel is right for us. It will probably be won't be a walk in the park to get. It's better than being fired from several jobs due to your differences.

How Autism Greatly Limits My Ability To Work A Job

I am trying to apply for SSI, got denied twice because they claim 'my conditions are not bad enough to keep me from working.' I got a call from the layers I am going through and I have to go to court. That probably will get denied too. It's harder now for people to get SSI because of people who leech off of benefits that they don't need. It's harder for us since we are not physically disabled. I thought I explain how my ability to perform a job is greatly limited to the point where getting a job will be basically impossible.

You are aware the gov shut down for 34 days last month and there were articles about food stamps and WIC being affected. I shared it on a page and this asshole told me to 'get off my ass and get a job.' I call these people assholes because getting a job is not that simple, one cannot walk into Target and come out with a job. You have to send in applications and it's you vs hundreds, thousands of people wanting the same job. Another t…

My Struggles With Finding A Job

I am currently unemployed due to my autism. I have trouble finding a job that fits my needs and has the settings that I require. I will perform better if the job has no sensory triggers. If the jobs have these sensory triggers, it will be hard to perform a job at 100%. I will be showcasing how it will be hard for me to find and keep a job due to my autism. In fact, many of us struggle to find and hold down a job. Around 80% of adults with autism are unemployed. Why is this? There are several reasons as to why most of us struggle with getting or keeping jobs.
Reason Why Finding/Holding A Job Will Be Hard
No Jobs With The Settings I Need To Function, I need a job that doesn't have a lot of people, no noise, where I can work at my own pace, with direct clear instructions, low stress, low anxiety, no lifting due to my shoulder injury and arthritis flare-ups. The list can go on. I can't function without these settings. Retail jobs such as fast-food and stores get busy at specific tim…
