The AUT-1A project team says goodbye

Mith the last conference, the project is rapidly coming to an end. The Team Projekt AUT-1A says goodbye to its readers and contributors and says THANK YOU!

THANK YOU for supporting us!

THANK YOU for your criticism and advice!

THANK YOU for enriching our project!

THANK YOU for contributing by answering the interviews and questionnaire!

THANK YOU for visiting our specialist days!

THANK YOU for showing interest in this topic!

The final report will be completed by the end of 2022. Our results from the 27-month research period can then be viewed.

In the course of the project, we generated, among other things, the website for companies, but also for all other people who would like to learn more about autism. Here you can find information about autism and work and some resources to help the employer.


The materials are certainly not complete, but it is planned to successively populate these pages.

We wish you all the best!

In conversation with t3n magazine

Autistic people are often marginalized at work. Employers benefit from them - not only in IT. 

Experts agree: the problem is not the diagnosis, but prejudice and ignorance.  

dr Katrin Reich had an interview with t3n magazine about this, but read for yourself!

Questionnaire action: drawing of the winners


Our nationwide questionnaire campaign has meanwhile been completed. We are currently evaluating all the feedback. 

As a thank you for taking part in our employer survey, the project team and the overall management of BBW St. Franziskus Walter Krug came up with something special in advance.

It was decided to raffle five beautiful handcrafted designer stools, made by trainees in the carpentry workshop of the BBW St. Franziskus in Abensberg, among the companies.

For this purpose, the media design training department of the Bugenhagen vocational training center on Timmendorfer Strand created very attractive postcards that were enclosed with the questionnaires.  

On Monday, November 16th, 2020 the time had come. The raffle took place behind closed doors.

A big thank you goes to our two trainees at BBW St. Franziskus Abensberg for drawing the winners.

All winners will be notified in the next few days.

Be curious!

Autism National Conference in Lübeck

06.03. - 08.03.2020


The 16th Autism Bundestag Conference of the Federal Association of Autism Germany eV met with great interest from exhibitors and visitors on the subject of “Autism – Disorder or Strength”.


Thanks to Mr. Frese, we had a small stand right in the entrance area, which was well attended. There was always a lively exchange about our project and about autism and work in general, and we received a lot of positive feedback on the project.


In addition, one of the scheduled speakers was absent on Saturday, freeing up 45 minutes of speaking time. Ms. Kaminski and Mr. Frese took the opportunity and gave us the opportunity to present the project in this context. Even if there was hardly any preparation time, a presentation was quickly updated and adapted accordingly. Luckily, the team had all the relevant data on a stick with them. Prof. em. dr phil. Matthias Dalferth and Dr. phil. Katrin Reich took over the part of the lecture and closed it with a short question and answer session. Not only were questions asked, but also some ideas and suggestions for the project were brought in, which made us really happy.


Many thanks to all visitors and interested parties.
