+ - Danish firm actively employs autistic workers 1

Submitted by xiox
xiox (66483) writes "A danish computer company, Specialisterne is actively employing autistic workers and now has 40 of them. The firm is planning to expand to the UK in Glasgow. The owner of the company was motivated to do this when one of his sons was diagnosed as autistic. The company provides a quiet environment and fixed routines. Given the right conditions, the staff are said to excel at technical tasks. In addition, robots and Lego models are used to test their skills."
