Autism

Autistic people face discrimination and prejudice in a society which expects us to understand and fit in with social rules that are not of our making. People with autism are also part of the disabled people's fightback. This section includes my work providing 'Autism in the workplace' training and information for trade union representatives, plus campaign news, and personal and political observations.

Neurodiversity in the Workplace: RMT training course

10/09/2018 - 13:00

The union's new 3-day course on Neurodiversity in the Workplace will run on 10-12 September at the National Education Centre. 'Neurodiversity' means that different people have different brain wiring. Unfortunately, those with a minority brain wiring - such as dyslexic, autistic and dyspraxic people - face discrimination at work and in wider society.
