Online Workshop: Supporting the wellbeing needs of neurodiverse colleagues

28th January 2021

As we look to 2021 and the next wave of change on the horizon, it’s essential that as part of your approach to inclusion, mental health and wellbeing, employers are aware of and are prepared to support the needs of neurodiverse colleagues.

Join us on Thursday 28th January from 11.00am – 1.00pm for a free to attend interactive online Make A Difference workshop focused on this topic in collaboration with DMA Talent and sponsored by Texthelp.

Employers are increasingly recognising the strengths and skills associated with neurodevelopmental conditions such as dyslexia, autism or ADHD. Yet many don’t realise that people who are neurodiverse are also statistically far more likely than the rest of the population to suffer from anxiety and depression.

Crucially, UK companies are legally obliged according to the Equality Act 2010 to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ for people with disabilities – an area that neurodiversity falls under according to the legislation.
