Workshop Overview

Elevate your team’s awareness, implement best practices, and foster a more inclusive workplace. Join us and empower your organisation to thrive in embracing neurodiversity!

Neurodiversity refers to the different ways the brain can work and interpret information. In Ireland, an estimated 4% (some worldwide figures suggest this figure is closer to 15%/20%) of the population are considered neurodiverse, which includes Autism, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, Attention Deficit Disorders and Obsessive-compulsive Disorders.

Despite most companies having an increasing focus on equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in the workplace, the neurodivergent group can often be overlooked in the workplace.

This half-day programme is tailored for HR professionals, line managers, and employee relations officers, providing essential tools to support neurodivergent employees both legally and practically.

Learning Objectives


The legal aspect of this workshop will look at:

  • The Employment Equality Acts, Disability Act 2005 and Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005
  • Creating clear guidance on employee rights and responsibilities in the workplace to ensure fair treatment

Relevant case law examples to cover:

  • Reasonable accommodations
  • Discriminatory Dismissal
  • Discrimination against a prospective employee
  • An employer’s constructive knowledge of disability

Hear from our Lead Trainer!

Ahead of this Seminar we asked Lead Trainer Síle O’Donnell (FCIPD) what leaders and HR professionals can do to create a work environment where neurodivergent people feel included and supported, and able to use their strengths? Here are her Top Tips!


Intended Audience 

HR Managers, Line Managers, Corporate Leaders and those with people managing responsibilities who would like to gain a deeper understanding into how neurodiverse people can be better included and accommodated in the workplace.
