Supporting a Neurodiverse Workforce
Neurodiversity Aware Award
The Neurodiversity Aware® Award is an accredited programme for those wanting to gain a greater understanding of supporting people who have neuro-divergent ‘conditions’ in a workplace perspective including those with:
- Dyspraxia/Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD)
- Autism Spectrum Condition/Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASC/ASD)
- Developmental Language Disorder (DLD)
Completion of the course and work associated with it, leads to an OCN Level 4 qualification.
The Neurodiversity Aware® training course provides the last remaining jigsaw piece for employers in the puzzle that is ‘neurodiversity’ and provides individuals and their employing organisations with an appreciation of the big ‘multi-dimensional’ picture of neurodiversity from a workplace perspective and equips them to bring about positive change to ensure the right processes are in place in the future.
Taking a proactive approach to providing appropriate support, when it is needed, increases the chances for employing organisations being able to tap into the strengths and talents. It is also indicative of a caring and supportive workplace in which people can feel safe to seek support if they need it.
Course leaders are Professor Amanda Kirby, and Janette Beetham from Right Resources.
