Abstract

Within this chapter, I have taken an ‘aut-ethnographic’ case-study approach (Milton, 2014a) to the issue of starting a new job, with particularly regard as to what can be learnt from this story for the context of mentoring young autistic adults beginning a period of employment. An aut-ethnography differs from auto-ethnography in some important respects which are outlined below. A case study can be said to involve a detailed investigation of a particular ‘case’ and the context within which a case exists, selected on the basis of having something of interest or revealing something of value that one can learn, from the in-depth analysis of a particular case (Creswell, 2009).
