The Search for Employment with Autism

Davin Stevenson
SAULT STE. MARIE, Ont. -- Devin Stevenson says he knows autism often holds him back.
He sometimes has trouble focusing. He has a tendency to get overly engrossed in one aspect of a task. And, if you were to explain something to Devin, he might need you to repeat it a second time, though he is quick to point out he’s not being purposefully inattentive.
“It‘s not because I‘m ignoring people,” said Stevenson.
It’s almost like there’s a filter in my mind and only certain things get through."
