Neurodiversity at Work
Neurodiversity at Work is a year-long project working with people for 12-26 weeks who have a neurodivergence (Autism, ADHD, Asperger’s, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and Dyscalculia) or are on the waiting list for a diagnosis.
The project supports people one to one, with further one to one support through ADD-vance, the ADHD and Autism Trust.
Participants have to:
- be 18 years and over
- live in Hertfordshire
- be registered with a Job Centre
- be unemployed and claiming benefits
- have a neurodivergence diagnosis or be on the waiting list for an assessment.
ADD-vance will be helping participants with their understanding of Neurodivergence and the strengths, challenges and supporting with coping strategies.
The provision follows the British Association for Supported Employment, however, the outcomes are a different.
People taking part in this project will be looking for paid work, but the project has other outcomes too, such as volunteering or work experience.
