Autism is a developmental disorder characterized by deficits in social interaction and communication, and restricted, repetitive interests. As a minor group with deficiencies, they have long been misunderstood and even discriminated against which contributes to a weak position. In addition, given the significant increase in its prevalence since it has been reported, there appears a greater necessity to gain a better understanding of this condition. To better understand the obstacles and related factors encountered by autism people, the author consulted the relevant literature and systematically analyzed the related problems encountered by autistic patients according to the existing information. The result shows that the obstacles includes female individuals’ misdiagnosis, sensory problems and selective attention, reading barriers and unemployment. Despite that autistic individuals experience difficulties which are barely known by the majority of people, they also show talents what they are interested in. They pay attention to details, patterns, and things that are normally overlooked. It will be beneficial for these autistic people for their families and society to help them enter the workplace.
