Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

This qualitative-phenomenological study examines the concept of accessibility of the working environment, in the perceptions of employees with ASD and their employers. Themes that emerged include basic perceptions relating to employment; practical motivation to employ or to be employed; specific approaches facilitating or impeding accessibility in the workplace; and accessibility dimensions and their components. These served as a basis for the development of the working environment accessibility measure.
