Work participation of autistic people is low, despite willingness to participate. During my PhD-project I want to find out what the causes are of this low participation rate and what can be done to increase their work participation .

At this moment we are processing the results of a Systematic Review for articles researching the perspective of autistic people on work and in particular at themselves as employee.

In the next phase we want to conduct a focus group study on how autistic people look at work, what their experiences are finding a job, and their experiences are with keeping a job. We also want to research their viewpoint on not having a job. This phase is subsidized by the Tilburg Alumni Fund with a scholarship.
