Neurodiversity refers to the different ways the brain can work and interpret information.
In Ireland, an estimated 4% 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 online programme will offer HR professionals, line managers and employee relations officers the tools required to support their neurodivergent employees, both from a legal and practical application standpoint.
Participants will gain a greater understanding of how to implement best practice policies and create a more inclusive workplace.
This seminar will give delegates a more indepth understanding of what is means to be neurodiverse and how a neurodiverse person thinks. This will aid in understanding how accommodations can be made in the workplace if required.
