Neurodiversity in the Workplace

An estimated 15-20% of the population are thought to exhibit some form of Neurodivergence, and yet the rate of disclosure in the workplace is low as many employees fear discrimination. Unfortunately, there are still many barriers to accessing and maintaining successful employment. The Office for National Statistics reported that 64% of employers understanding little or nothing about Neurodivergent conditions.

There are several advantages to creating an inclusive workforce and increasing accessibility for Neurodivergent employees. Diverse teams tend to benefit from increased productivity, lower turnover, higher rates of employee satisfaction, and are better equipped to serve the wide-ranging needs of the public.

This training will help staff understanding the common barriers to accessing and maintaining successful employment and explore practical strategies, solutions, and reasonable adjustments to support Neurodivergent individuals during recruitment and in the workplace.

Training Objectives:

• Become familiar with the language of Neurodiversity and Neurodevelopmental conditions.

• An overview of the characteristics of many Neurodevelopmental conditions, intersecting factors, and differences in presentation.

• Understanding the common barriers to accessing and maintaining successful employment.

• Recognise the benefits of improving sustained employment outcomes for Neurodivergent individuals and the wider community.

• An overview of unconscious bias, mindset and other challenges that can influence the treatment of Neurodivergent individuals.

• Exploring practical strategies, solutions, and reasonable adjustments to support Neurodivergent individuals during recruitment and in the workplace.
