A neurodivergent is a person who identifies as being autistic, has ADHD, dyslexia or dyspraxia. They might have a formal diagnosis, or they might not. These individuals will have strengths and talents that will benefit your team and challenges that might require accommodations.
Many of our diverse graduates come to us after unsuccessfully attending job interviews. They often have low self-confidence, and the first accommodation we provide is to give them some additional support at the interview. We might look to provide them with the name of the interviewers, how long the interview will take and what the questions or topics will be in advance. This information is reassuring and helps reduce interviewee anxiety. This is the first accommodation. The second is providing detailed feedback on their performance at the interview to support improvements and development for future interview situations.
These small accommodations make a huge difference to building up someone’s confidence and providing for a positive experience for both the interviewer and interviewee.
When onboarding, we provide the new hire with additional information if they need it.
When on the job, each diverse hire will require different accommodations. Examples include:
Every neurodivergent person is unique, and we will work with them and you in a customised way to provide an inclusive environment.
