Autism Employee Support in the Workplace
For inclusive employers with a neurodiverse workforce, we offer support for your employees with autism.
Autism in the Workplace
Recent employment statistics found that only 22% of autistic people in the UK are in employment, compared to 54% of all disabled people and 81% of non-disabled people. This is a significant employment gap that needs to be addressed.
We know that autistic people have unique and valuable skills which can be an asset to any organisation. Whilst no autistic person is the same, autistic people tend to be efficient and logical thinkers, with fantastic attention to detail and retention skills.
However, when you are autistic there are barriers to break in the traditional workplace. Autistic people may be misunderstood at work which can make work unnecessarily stressful.
Our Autism Support
At Exceptional Individuals, we provide workplace needs assessments to ensure the working environment is suitable so that employees with autism can make the most of their valuable skills. Employers can access financial support through the Access to Work scheme to cover some, or all, of the costs of implementing our recommendations.
We offer neurodiverse employee support for employees with autism. We help them identify and enhance strengths and work through challenges such as soft skills, communication, and confidence.
We also provide neurodiversity consultancy services for employers looking to support their employees and make the most of their talent pool.
