Asperger Technical was contacted in May by the mother of a 17 year old currently at college studying A Levels in maths, computing, and electronics. His original plan was to go to university and study either electronic engineering or computing, but he couldn't decide which at the time.

After the advice given by Asperger Technical, he had second thoughts about university. Now he is thinking that it could be better to take a vocational course in computing, or even attempt to enter the job market after college and build up a career through work experience. One member of Asperger Technical recommended contacting the IET for more information and advice.

His mother has started a thread on the IET discussion forum used by professional electronic engineers. There haven't been many replies which further reinforces what Asperger Technical has said about hardly anybody in the high technology industry has even heard of Asperger syndrome, let alone has a reasonably good understanding of the condition.

The IET discussion forum is open to anybody who registers and you do not need to be an engineer or a member of the IET to join. If you would like to contribute to the discussion then you are welcome.
