Autism Europe talked about autism and work at the European Parliament
Aurelie Baranger presented
about people with autism at work.
Aurelie is the director of Autism Europe.
The presentation was on November 5 2019.
She presented at the European Parliament.
The European Parliament make laws
for all people of the European Union.
Laws are rules all people must follow.
Autism Europe wants better laws for people with autism
who work and want to work.
Only few people with autism in Europe work.
This is because people with autism
do not get the training they need.
Also because people with autism
do not always get the right help or tools or workplace
to work well.
Sometimes the boss of a person with autism
does not like the way people with autism generally work.
But people with autism are good at lots of things.
These things are also helpful for many workplaces.
When people with autism are good at these things
they can find work or can be better at work.
But people with autism need the right training
to find work and to be better at work.
Aurelie showed some
members of the European Parliament a video
about what people with autism who want to work find difficult.
Aurélie explained what the European Parliament can do
to make it easy for people with autism to get a good job.
Then some members of the European Parliament said
they want to change the way people with autism
find work or be better at work.
