'Targeting' and 'Psychotherapeutic interventions'
A post on the NAS website's forum about the Department for Work and Pensions "targeting those with Autism and Aspergers to undergo Psychotherapeutic interventions." The concern is the tone of blaming people for difficulties they never chose to have, as efforts should be directed at employers themselves. All the 'Psychotherapeutic interventions' are not going to make me a world class front line customer service bod, they need to be working with employers to get them to understand the possibility of placing individuals with Aspergers in the jobs that will utilise their strengths while not penalising their disability.
