Autism toolkit

"“Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how people perceive the world and interact with others” (NAS, 2020).

Weston College is a Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Centre for Excellence and a Queen’s Anniversary Prize winner for our outstanding inclusive practice.

This means we have a wealth of knowledge and expertise which we're keen to share with employers.

At Weston College we have specialist practitioners in Autism available to conduct workplace assessments and offer advice and guidance to not only the employee but employer, so please don’t hesitate to get in contact with the team to request this support.

It is important to remember that there are positives to thinking differently. Although autistic people may experience some of the difficulties listed above, they are known to be creative thinkers artistically and linguistically, who value problem solving as well as practicality. Ensuring employees with learning difficulties are supported effectively will enable you to harness the true potential and diverse skill set within your workforce.

Get in touch today to talk about how we can help support your organisation.
