NDCO Webinar - The Neurodiverse Workforce
Tapping into the autism advantage moment

While as many as 1 in every 59 people is on the autism spectrum, 31.6% of working age autistic Australians are unemployed. This is more than three times the unemployment rate of people with disability and almost six times the rate of people without disability.

The webinar will:

  • Look at strategies for supporting individuals on their transition to employment
  • Explore ideas for working with employers to think differently about their recruitment process
  • The Autism advantage
  • Question and Answer session

It would be great if you can join us.
