A commonly used quote used when talking about autism is: “If you’ve met one autistic person, you’ve met one autistic person”. This quote is used to illustrate the point that autism is an extremely heterogeneous condition. Yet, variability is rarely acknowledged in research, nor investigated. If high heterogeneity is part and parcel to autism, we really need to start understanding, not only what is driving it and how it may impact on developmental outcomes, but more importantly how we can use this knowledge to develop effective support. In this talk I will present preliminary data providing rather surprising results regarding variability in autism. I will also briefly discus how variability can be embraced in employment support.
