From Autism Transition Handbook
A full-time or part-time job with market wages and responsibilities is considered competitive. Usually, no long-term support is provided to the employee to help him learn the job or continue to perform the job. The majority of jobs are considered competitive employment, such as waiting on tables, cutting grass, fixing cars, teaching, computer programming, or writing guidebooks on transitions! Competitive employment is most often associated with individuals who are already fairly highly skilled, such as an adult with Asperger Syndrome, but may be suitable for other individuals with greater challenges as a function of the task and the environment in which they are to work.
