The webinars we will be delivering are:

Autism in the Workplace: Challenging 5 common assumptions

  1. All Autistic individuals need high levels of support in the workplace
  2. Autistic people can’t cope with change
  3. Autistic people are not team players
  4. Autistic people tend to work in engineering or IT
  5. The process of employing, supporting, and developing autistic individuals is very complicated

Date: Tuesday 30th March at 2pm.
