Employing people with Neurodiversity
Neurodiversity create strengths that can benefit workplaces and communities. Genius Within CIC is a social enterprise established in 2011 to help people with neurodiversity to fulfil their potential in employment and their careers. They are working towards a future where all adults with neurodiversity will be able to maximise their potential and work to their strengths; where those with problems at work or in custody receive the diagnosis, coaching and support that they need.
The award-winning BBC2 series, Employable Me and now Employable Me 2 has featured Genius Within’s work with disabled jobseekers as the prove that disability should not be a barrier to employment. You can find out more here.
Genius Within have prepared a series of 10 Things Guides for the IEP to assist employability professionals in supporting people with neurodiversity into work. The first, 10 Things to supporting people with Aspergers into work is below and the remainder will follow in the coming weeks.
