Remaining politically neutral during General Election 2024


Under guidance from the Electoral Commission and Charity Commission, it's important that Scope remains politically neutral during General Elections.

While we understand that this period will see many passionate discussions and do not want to discourage open discussion, we cannot allow discussions which are purely intended to influence voting.

As ever, please make sure that your comments remain respectful of other people's opinions and keep to our online community house rules.

Navigating a career when on the spectrum

I'd like to draw community member's attention to a new book that shows first-hand insights and gives practical advice to those who are navigating a career and are on the spectrum. It's called "Somewhere on the Spectrum...: Once Upon a Business" by John Leonard Hart III.


John has been diagnosed with Asperger's and is a software architect, writer, and entrepreneur.  His book is available on Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble.com, and other outlets.

    I realise you haven’t posted a link to your book this time but you’ve still given details of where to buy that book. This is the same as advertising for a paid product, which is against the rules here. 
    You were advised of this on your other thread from a member of the scope team. See your thread here, with a link to the forum rules. https://forum.scope.org.uk/discussion/96449/check-out-this-fun-and-useful-read-for-those-on-the-spectrum#latest
    I’ve reported your comment.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Right. I understand your concern. But is there a way to share something with the community that I do think is of value to them?

    No not by advertising a paid product because scope will not allow this. 
    A member of the scope team will see this tomorrow when they start work and I’m sure they will respond.
