Specialisterne Ireland reserves the right to advise that the individual contact alternative organisations, if these organisations are better placed to support their needs.
It has made a huge impact on the teams where colleagues with Autism have been involved. They certainly have a greater sense of cohesion and they themselves have looked at themselves as individuals in how they treat others, not necessarily those with Autism, but also those not on the Spectrum.
It’s kind of like playing Tetris – you need all different shapes working together. Specialisterne know how to get different minds working together. They can help you find a job that fits you
The team at Specialisterne helped my skills and qualities to be recognised in the IT sector where they otherwise might have been overlooked, and with that first helpful step onto the ladder, my career has only taken off soaring from there
The really good thing about Specialisterne is the continuing support that you get after you get into employment. I’m not quite sure that I would still be here were it not for the constant support that I get from Specialisterne.
Having someone to raise concerns to, even small ones that don’t need any practical solutions but just the classic, a problem shared is a problem halved, it’s nice just to get that reassurance sometimes.
Specialisterne gave me tips, went to the interviews with me, helped settle me in once they got me a placement, and supported me through difficult times when in employment and for that I was very grateful and now I’m full time and permanent in SAP. Working with Specialisterne has totally changed my life.
If you are autistic I would seriously recommend Specialisterne without question. The staff there are excellent due to their knowledge, resources, patience and kindness. The placements they recommend are perfect in terms of the experience/skills they provide, as well as the workplace making you feel productive, welcomed and worthwhile.
