Co-Investigator: Terrell Holmes, Graduate Student, University of San Francisco

Autistic software developers are more sensitive to stressors inherent in the IT workplace.

This study aims to understand the impact of the IT workplace stressors on autistic software developers in order to develop interventions to mitigate the effects of these stressors.
