I'm Janine Booth. I'm autistic, and I write and deliver training courses to trade unionists and others about autism and neurodiversity. As part of the courses, we look at real-life case studies of neurodivergent workers' experiences. It is important to use up-to-date case studies, so I am interested in hearing your story.
