Free Seminars on Managing Dyslexia in the Workplace for HR & Occ Health and Managers

 

15th October: Tackling stress through inclusive policy on ‘neuro-diversity’

We will cover:

  • The full range of neuro-diverse strengths and weaknesses – including creative thinking skills, innovation and visual thinking, as well as difficulties with time management, concentrating in open plan offices, tracking conversations
  • We will explore which contexts suit, and which contexts impede, neuro-diverse adults
  • We will examine the relationship between dyslexic difficulty, work performance and how this can lead to stress
  • We will identify the ways in which your organisation can provide support, signposting and organisational practices that will enable all neuro-diverse adults to work at their best, as a preventative early measure
  • We will recommend routes for resolution of existing problems where stress and poor productivity has already become entrenched

16th October: Neuro-diversity and the DDA 95/05 /Equality Act 2010

We will cover:

  • The definitions of and wording around disability, as outlined in the DDA and further clarified in the Equality Act 2010 Code of Practice, and how this relates to different neuro-diverse conditions
  • We will explore an employer’s obligations under the regulations and outline a stepped approach to dealing with individual cases, including the work based assessment process and Access to Work
  • We will review case studies of Employment Tribunals which involve neuro-diverse adults
  • We will outline a range of reasonable adjustments that can be made cost free and those which require the supply of technology or specialist support

17th October: Making the most of Assistive Technology

We will cover:

  • A range of common assistive software and hardware available to support neuro-diverse adults in the workplace – functions, costs, comparables
  • The importance of training and making sure we spend money on products that will actually be used
  • Making the most of everyday software – how MS Outlook and other standard programmes have feature and benefits which support neuro-diversity

    I currently belong to the South West OH Nurses Group and consider that this would be of great interest to the group.
    Would you be interested in arranging a training day for us in the South West?

      We’re booking 10 people on max, so that we can talk to everyone and discuss individual cases if needs be. It will be a central location.

    I would be interested in attending the training on 30.04.2013 in London especially that I have had recently a few quite difficult cases to deal with which are still opened ( in view of capability at work).
    Please could you be so kind as to book a place for me and provide me with more information about the training.

    Thanking you in anticipation
    Alicja

    Please could you send me details of the course in Birmingham including dates and venue . I currently work as an occupational health advisor and feel that the said course will be more than beneficial.
    Many thanks.
