That's the quandary with autism. Logic and thinking skills are generally at a very advanced level, but the social skills are behind, or even absent in severe cases, and present a serious hurdle. It's good to have autism diagnosed because then help is available and people (employers) are starting to understand the abilities and limitations of autistic people. Aspergers is still a quasi-condition. Some people recognize it and others don't, saying it is not different than a quirky or eccentric personality. I think there is useful work out there for Robert. You said he got high marks in the electrician's course. He could do some sort of technical repair or build work, and would probably even enjoy it. I hope the agency that sends you his worker can put employment in Robert's future. The right conditions and an understanding boss and he could thrive.
they have work shops. He has been offered and he refuses. Based on principal. they will pay him less then min. wage . He feels they take advantage of the special needs people. He sees them working in Good will and it upsets him because he knows they are not paid like a "normal" would be. He also lets them know about it. He now refuses those shopping places.
