Commented for AAT article
I was asked to comment on autism in accountancy for AAT.
I was hesitant to contribute to this AAT article as Autism is complicated and I didn't want it to show one side. Yes being autistic and an accountant are the perfect fit for me, but that doesn't take away how challenging the work environment can be.
I'm glad I did contribute. This is a great article and well worth a read.
I have spent the last 2 days carrying out a huge reconciliation. As challenging as it was, that fact I get to call that my day job and love the buzz of it, that's pretty incredible.
For me, accountancy and autism do compliment each other.
