Autism was first identified in 1911 by a German psychiatrist named Eugen Bleuler. Bleuler categorized autism as a symptom of severe schizophrenia. In the 1960s the word Autism took a major shift and by the 1980s autism finally received a separate and distinct diagnosis from schizophrenia.
To this day, people continue to challenge the basic understanding of autism.
While the majority of available resources are geared towards helping children navigate autism, a much smaller amount of resources has been used to help adults.
One major area that needs attention is autism in the workplace.
