Research & Development

The Neurodiversity Children’s Profiler (for parents) is the result of more than 10 years of development, research, and clinical practice.

The Profiler is a screener. It offers a first step to discuss the pattern of strengths and challenges with educators or health professionals and provides you as a parent with some practical guidance.

A diagnosis would need to be made by a specialist who would gather more information and rule in or out other conditions.

The validity component of the Neurodiversity Children’s Profiler (for parents) in relation to the traits associated with the conditions consists of two parts:

1) The definition
2) Data analysis

Where there is an internationally agreed definition of a given disability, then the core to validity of the questions is the degree of agreement between the questions asked and the defining characteristics. To be more specific, if the definition of dyslexia includes “difficulty in the acquisition of reading”, then the questionnaire should have questions about reading and the closer the question is to the words in the definition, including characteristics such as those in DSM-5, then the higher the face validity(i.e. the more acceptable it is).

We ask a series of questions and rank some questions as more indicative than others, and why this is referred to as a screening and not a diagnosis.

We have also used data we have gathered from the people who have completed this over time including collecting data from assessment tools in Profiler itself and comparing the results of Profiler to those who have been given a diagnosis of the conditions.

What is neurodiversity?

Neurodiversity is, as the name suggests, a term which expresses the fact that all of our brains (neuro) are wired differently (diverse). Originally used in the late 1990s in particular with those with Autism Spectrum Disorder, it is now used for a wider collection of conditions including dyslexia, dyspraxia (DCD or Developmental Coordination Difficulties), ADHD and language disorders.

The common factor with these “labels” is that they all use a series of traits to identify/diagnose the condition but you do not need to show all of those conditions to have that “classification”. This, of course, highlights that everybody is different – neurodiverse. So, for example, no two dyslexia individuals are the same. Once we understand this, then we can focus on the specific problems rather than try to make assumptions about what may be the difficulties based on some generalised classification. That is, the labels may be very good (in current circumstances) to open funding pots, but may be limited in the provision of support.

The Neurodiversity Children’s Profiler (for parents) provides guidance based upon these principles, offering feedback from specific responses. However, it does also provide a summary of traits, since we also understand that people sometimes need labels.

Customer testimonials

We have a growing community of wonderful organisations who care about the individuals they work with and want to make a difference. Here’s what some of them have to say about Do-IT…

University of Nottingham Logo

University of Nottingham

"The Do-It Profiler is more than a screener and it has proved to be a really effective resource for the University. It has been invaluable in supporting the increasing number of students exploring the possibility of having a Specific Learning Difference. Not only does the report it produces support students in deciding whether they wish to undertake a formal assessment for a range of SpLDs, but the program also helps each student identify their strengths and limitations and matches this profile to various study resources, so empowering independent student learning. Several academic schools have benefitted from using the latter aspect of the Do It Profiler during their transition programmes."
Right Resources Ltd Logo

CEO, Janette Beetham, Right Resources Ltd

"Having used the Do-IT Profiler ‘Workplace Assessors+’ with individuals in a cross section of workplace settings for the past 18 months I would definitely recommend it to those qualified to undertake workplace needs assessments.The multi-modular nature of the Do-IT Workplace Assessors+ means you can select the most appropriate and useful elements to provide a more bespoke screening experience for each individual. Also, the integrated well-being element provides an invaluable insight prior to the implementation of any ‘reasonable adjustments’ and this can then be reviewed after a programme of support has been provided. In my experience this version of the Do-IT Profiler has a use beyond the initial screening stage. Whilst the Workplace Needs Assessor will examine the challenges related to the individual’s job role and work environment the various components within the Do-IT Workplace Assessor+ add to the information being gathered and assists with making recommendations for adjustments tailored to the needs of the individual."
St Helens Youth Justice Service Logo

Operational Manager, Lee Matthews, St Helens Youth Justice Service

"Do-IT profiler’ has been an invaluable in assisting Youth Justice Service practitioners to identify the neurodiverse strengths and challenges of the children that we work with. Using this tool, practitioners have been able to tailor plans and interventions specifically with each child in mind. In addition, practitioners have been able to share findings with other key agencies to ensure a each child’s needs are supported appropriately across the partnership. Regular data analysis from the team has also helped us to gain a greater understanding of the neurodiversity of children known to our service."

People Partner, Karina Olver, FSCS

"The Financial Services Compensation Scheme has recently worked closely with Do-IT Profiler and Dr. Amanda Kirby to progress our inclusivity work with a particular focus on Neurodiversity and how we can best support our colleagues. Dr. Kirby held an informative learning session on Neurodiversity with our colleagues, which was invaluable for all that attended. We also undertook the Neurodiversity Confident - Gap Analysis and Disability Confident - Gap Analysis which helped us highlight any areas for development where we could take further steps to improve our ways of working and processes. We are proud that we have recently received our Disability Confident Leader status, and Do-It Profiler has been instrumental with their guidance and support in helping us achieve this."
BT

Group Diversity & Inclusion Lead, Giles M Barker, BT

"We have had the pleasure of Amanda facilitating two excellent neurodiversity training sessions as part of our Disability Rapid Action Plan. The first took us through an introduction to neurodiversity and the second looked at neurodiversity and children. These created a lot of engagement and questions from the large audiences that attended both sessions."

Admiral

"Working with neurodiversity specialists, Do-IT Solutions, has been an integral to our drive to be ahead of the curve for all our colleagues in Admiral. Their invaluable expertise and diagnostic tools have not only enabled our strategies but also our working practices, paving the way for a more inclusive and innovative future. Do-IT Solutions' (and Professor Kirby’s) commitment to neurodiversity is truly commendable. They provided us with tailored advice and training that was not only insightful but also empathetic, understanding the unique needs and strengths of our neurodiverse team members. This approach helped us to foster our inclusive culture where every voice is heard and valued and raise the standards of accessibility from the moment someone shows interest in working for us. This also helped us integrate neurodiversity seamlessly into our overall strategy. Their guidance opened new avenues for talent acquisition and retention, making our organisation more competitive and forward-thinking. The positive ripple effect of their insights has been witnessed across the company. In summary, working with Do-IT Solutions has been key to our knowledge and helped add to our overall employee value proposition. Their dedication to making the workplace more inclusive and accessible is not only praiseworthy but also vital for any organisation striving to excel in today's diverse world. We're grateful for their partnership and look forward to continued growth and success together."
Skills Academy Wales

Skills Academy Wales

"Do-IT Profiler has proven to be an invaluable tool for early identification of additional learning needs within our organisation, through self disclosures and through the use of the screening tool. The screening tool assists with identification of learning needs and allows for quick, effective support to be implemented from the beginning of the learning journey. The resources attached to the person-centred reports for each learner are an excellent addition and easily accessible."

Nicola James, Amrop

"Our session with Amanda was extremely informative, and has changed the way I look at things / interact with people. I am looking forward to completing the e-learning course to increase my knowledge further."

Laure Mullins, West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service

"We started using the Do-IT Profiler for our staff about 3 years ago. I’m really impressed, blown away even, with the quality of the reports that have been produced. The bespoke information, along with ideas for support and coping mechanisms, have enabled me to have meaningful discussions with the individuals. We have been able to tailor the support so that it is specific for their individual needs. Where the report has been shared with the line manager, this has helped them to understand any challenges and flex some of the more practical elements of the work. This includes adapting how on the job skills training is delivered. This approach has helped people to excel in their ambition to become fully qualified Fire Fighters where they would otherwise have struggled. These assessments are enabling us to support staff at all levels and roles across our service. To quote a recent recruit "I don't have the words to tell you what this means to me. For the first time ever I feel included and supported.""

Devon and Cornwall Police

"From the start, the Do-IT team have been professional, swift and responsive in helping us not only to implement the profiler but how to ensure our Keyworkers and service users can get the best out of it. They have provided a wealth of supporting resources, guidance and training to improve the team's understanding of neurodiversity and how it can impact the individuals they're working with. Our keyworkers have found the report very valuable in establishing the needs of particular service users...implementing the profiler has provided our team with an accessible, and tangible resource we can utilise, to ensure we are identifying and adapting to the needs of our service users, whilst providing them with a supportive resources and strategies they can implement now and take forward into the future."
