Self Employment and Autism

Self employment is the act of working for yourself instead of working for somebody else.

Self employed people obtain their income directly from customers and clients.

Self employed people can sometimes match their interests and strengths to a product or a service that provides an income. 

Some self employed people can also tailor their work environment to their own needs.

However, being self-employed requires many skills and abilities that some people on the autism spectrum will find difficult  (such as planning ahead and liaising with customers).
