A starting point

OK where to start.

I am a software tester in Hewlett Packard.

I work closely with a group of 10 others on the Autism Spectrum and five Non-Autistic people.
As a software tester my job is to ensure a computer program works correctly to the specifications handed down by the stakeholders. This requires an ability to pick up on small details.

As an Aspie I have the ability to concentrate on small details which has enabled me to quickly pick up the skills required to do software testing.

This job has helped me to learn more about how my mind works, and to get to know others with my condition.

Software Testing would suit people on the Autism Spectrum because it uses the abilities that we all posses: attention to small details, concentration on tasks that are repetitive, and the ability to remember and recall large amounts of information.

Thanks for reading
