Autism Spectrum Disorder, the Equality Act & Reasonable Adjustments

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can be one of the most complicated neurodevelopmental issues to formulate reasonable adjustments for as it frequently spans social, communication and cognitive domains. There are an increasing number of resources for employers and educators to help with this: http://network.autism.org.uk/knowledge/insight-opinion/top-autism-tips-employment-reasonable-adjustments  http://www.autism.org.uk/get-involved/tmi/advice/blogs/blog-reasonable-adjustments-151216.aspx https://www.equalityhumanrights.com/en/multipage-guide/examples-reasonable-adjustments-practice http://employment.autismnetworkscotland.org.uk/information-for-employers/reasonable-adjustments/ https://www.tuc.org.uk/sites/default/files/Autism.pdf http://www.disabilityaction.org/fs/doc/publications/employing-people-with-autism-a-brief-guide-for-employers-external-publication.pdf http://www.personneltoday.com/hr/manage-autism-workplace/ Given the nature of ASD, with incredibly varying presentations in different people with the same diagnosis, it is clear that no single guide will provide comprehensive advice.
