Employment and autism
We know that just 16% of autistic adults are in full time work, and with the current pandemic many autistic people are feeling even more uncertain about their job prospects.
In this webinar we speak to researcher Dr Brett Heasman lead researcher for DARE (Discover Autism Research and Employment) and Amy Walker (DARE consultant and Neurodivergent changemaker) about how we can make the workplace more accessible for autistic people.
We know that just 16% of autistic adults are in full time work, and with the current pandemic, many autistic people are feeling even more uncertain about their job prospects.
We'll explore what our research with autistic people and companies tells us about:
- disclosing a diagnosis at work
- adjustments employers could be making for autistic staff
- business benefits and benefits for autistic people to be in meaningful employment
And we'll talk about our research project DARE, that is working with companies on all of these issues.
This webinar is aimed at autistic people, their supporters and employers.
