Practically-focused and interactive workshops that aim to empower participants to take a person-centred approach, to more effectively support autistic people into meaningful employment. We apply a blend of participatory activity, presented content and insights from recent research and policy, to address the following key question:
“What does an autistic person need, and what can we provide to them, in order for them to feel comfortable, safe, and well enough supported to find suitable work, do their job effectively, and feel fulfilled?”
In our accessible and adaptable workshops, participants gain valuable first-hand insight into the employment experiences of two autistic ‘experts by experience’, Anna Nibbs and Jonathan Drury. We are both autistic and have an extensive range of practical skills, expertise and background knowledge and experience in training delivery and consultancy.
Throughout the workshops we model a responsive person-centred approach, taking into close consideration the needs and comfort of our audience, both collectively and as individuals.
