What will you learn from the training

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.

Audience: Everyone working with the Public
