Workplace Autism Training

New for 2023

We have been working with private and public sectors in the UK to develop Autism and Neurodiversity in the Workplace courses for managers and staff. Hilary Forbes has joined the team as our workplace coordinator so that we can offer this training to other businesses and workplaces. We have previously delivered training for large and small companies. Please get in touch if we can help your company become more aware and support your neurodivergent employees.

As employers of autistic, ADHD and dyslexic people we have experience and knowledge of employment law, recruitment and ongoing support of neurodivergent employees who are valuable additions to our workforce.

Get in touch for more information. We can now deliver training online as well as face to face.

Neurodiversity Awareness

Training for managers, team leaders and teams about how a neurodivergent workplace brings creativity and a wider range of skills to the workplace. With tips on being a manager of a neurodivergent team.

Autistic and Neurodivergent people work across every industry. We can train teams on awareness and provide support for individuals to suggest reasonable adjustments and support for thriving at work.

Workplace feedback from Sophie Pringle (she/her), Assistant Consultant at Gatenby Sanderson, who quotes that Lynn really took the time to understand our company and values and tailored her presentation to suit this. She provided a thoughtful, honest and interactive session that colleagues really enjoyed. Colleagues commented on how helpful and informative Lynn was, and that the session she provided was a really helpful insight into expanding our understanding of Neurodiversity. Lynn created a really open and relaxed atmosphere, where people could ask questions and be confident enough to bring any thoughts or ideas they may have forward as well.
