Tips for interviewing adults with autism

I have had the wonderful pleasure of speaking and interacting with many adults on the autism spectrum, or autistic adults, as many prefer to be called. Here, I share a few tips for making conversations and interview most successful.

Here are the tips to keep in mind:

  1. Connect first by being curious
  2. Be authentic
  3. Simplify age appropriate wording
  4. Give specific examples
  5. Recognize signs of needing processing time
  6. Let them surprise you
