A short introduction for staff

A one-hour seminar delivered online, which workers can log into from their workplace or home, introducing the subject of neurodiversity in the workplace.

The seminar uses an illustrated talk to introduce what neurodiversity is and to examine the barriers that workplaces put in the way of colleagues, clients and others who are autistic, dyspraxic, dyslexic or dyscalculic or have ADHD or Tourette syndrome. Participants have the opportunity to ask questions and make comments.

It explains how workplaces can become more for neuro-inclusive, and concludes with discussion of realistic workplace scenarios.

It is an ideal short taster on the increasingly important subject of neurodiversity in the workplace.

Usual price: £80 (unions and non-profits); £160 (public sector bodies and large non-profits); £200 (private companies)

Neurodiversity in the workplace

Enormous value

All trade union reps need to come on this training! Janine has used both her trade union and personal experience to develop and deliver a highly effective course which equips reps to become more confident in dealing with autism related issues both in their workplaces and their trade unions. At the WEA these courses were in high demand and hugely popular with consistently good feedback citing the enormous value in terms of new knowledge and awareness of autism.

Beyond Neurodiversity Awareness: Red in the Spectrum

Our Values: we believe

  • that humanity is neurologically diverse and that this is beneficial
  • that minority neurotypes bring strengths as well as challenges
  • that your organisation will be stronger if it becomes more inclusive of neurodivergent people
  • in the social model of disability, understanding that society disables people who have impairments and/or differences
  • in the slogan ‘Nothing About Us Without Us’ – that barriers can only be removed by listening to neurodivergent people rather than talking over us
  • in accessibility as standard, not ‘as required’
  • that neurodivergent people need more than ‘awareness’: we need equality, rights and acceptance.
  • that training is most effective when it is participatory and enjoyable
