“Just over 1 in 5 autistic adults are in work, despite our research showing the vast majority want to work.” (NAS, 2021)
Our Employment Engagement officer will work with you to find out more about how your business works, what you are looking for in an employee and the type of support you will need. We will work with you to ensure that tailored support is in place and advise you on the reasonable adjustments that can made. We will also be able to support you in the process of becoming a disability confident employer.
We can help both you and your employee apply for Access to Work, a government funded scheme that enables us to provide:
Get support in work if you have a disability or health condition (Access to Work) – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
We interviewed employers about their experience of recruiting and managing an autistic person. Click on the link below to view the video on YouTube.
Our members talk about some of their experiences in the workplace, including the application and interview process.
Our workplace support assessments are an excellent opportunity for a better understanding of an autistic employee. We provide an on-site assessment followed up with a short report with recommendations for reasonable adjustments to the workplace and role.
Taking place in your workplace, assessments involve meeting with employer and employee and visiting the individuals work area, however these can take place remotely on Microsoft Teams if more appropriate.
Adjustments may include strategies around communication, flexibility of thought and structure, sensory considerations, environmental adaptations, mentoring, etc.
Our assessments are extremely competitively priced but start from £50 per hour.
Please contact us to discuss your individual needs and book your assessment now.
