Neuroinclusive Practice™

Foundation training related to neurodivergent ‘conditions’ (such as Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, Attention Deficit Disorder and the Autistic Spectrum) is often not delivered as standard to those in leadership roles – yet it is estimated at least 1 in 8 of the working population are neurodivergent.

Therefore, many line managers, supervisors and HR personnel are unlikely to be equipped to ‘spot the signs’ or be able to effectively manage and support neurodiverse staff. Many organisations, also lack accurate organisation-wide, awareness of what neurodiversity actually is and the potential impact of neurodivergent ‘conditions’ – on the workplace.

As a result, neurodivergent colleagues often fail to reach their full potential.

To make progress in this area it is essential for leaders, line managers, supervisors and HR personnel to understand the following:

  • The strengths and opportunities that come with appropriately supporting neurodivergent individuals
  • The range of potential workplace-related challenges, including stigma, prejudice and misconceptions
  • The process of support, is it recognised and publicised? Providing support is not often seen as a priority (until there is some kind of litigation)
  • Why ‘accessible’ workplace processes are essential and how to implement best practice
  • The connection between not providing support and the potential negative impact on wellbeing and mental health
  • The legal obligations in relation to neurodivergent employees (Equality Act 2010).

This program is a blended learning experience including:

  • Online training
  • Webinars
  • Mentoring
  • Coaching support

There are no pre-requisites for attending and we assume people have had no prior training in this area. We start ‘from scratch’ because it is vitally important to ensure we build on solid foundations. (For those who have previous experience or training, this will be a useful refresher and an opportunity to add to their current workplace-related learning).
