We are pleased to see this work being completed however we would very much like to know;

  • Were autistic people involved in the development of autism framework?
  • Is there work being undertaken to train and improve the awareness of real benefits and the asset of employing a neurodiverse workforce with employers?

Reasonable Adjustments are very important and a legal requirement, but there are so many other barriers to employment for autistic people, for example stigma and the lack of understanding of what autism actually is.

Autism Oxford UK offers training to employers in the attempt to challenge stigma and myths around autism, but also showcasing the benefits of having a blended team of neurotypical and neurodiverse individuals. We also provide practical support to autistic people to reach their employment aspirations and maintain their employment.

If we can help you, please get in touch with us by using our enquiry form on our website.
