Research has shown that people with neurodiversity are more likely to be long-term unemployed and convicted of crimes than their neuro-typical peers.  Traditionally, work in this area has focused on the literacy difficulties associated with dyslexia.

We think a radical new approach is required.  Adults need to focus on:

1) the areas most concerning to a workplace.

2) the positive strengths associated with neurodiversity.

Our research has shown that memory difficulties and time / organisational skills are the most prevalent issues for neurodiveristy.  This will affect people attending interviews and learning new routines, which impacts hugely on employability. Find out more about our research here.

We’ve found that tackling memory, organisation and time improves peoples’ abilities to approach work opportunities with professionalism and confidence.  This can be done in peer-led groups for a cost effective approach that deals with the real barriers to employment for this group.

We can find roles that minimise the need for reading and writing, but everyone needs to remember new instructions and arrive at work on time.  Neurodiversity can limit employability in a very specific, non-obvious way and our programmes address this directly. Once employed, technology and Access to Work support can address literacy limitations in direct relation to the job role.

Contact Candy Whittome, our Head of Social Inclusion, to find out how we can help improve your programme with our courses, resources and staff training, or Kate Gilbert, Head of Business Development, if you would like to be part of our research pilots or incorporate our services into your contracts.
