Thank you to Colette Marquess, a PCS union representative in Belfast, for writing this report after attending the Neurodiversity in the Workplace course run by Janine.
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.
It is increasingly recognised that there are an enormous variety of different ways our human brains are ‘wired’. One of the ways this ‘neurological diversity’ finds expression is in a range of conditions such as those on the autism ‘spectrum’ (Aspergers, dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, AD(H)D, Tourette’s Syndrome and others).
Three years ago, at the age of 45, I was diagnosed as autistic. It made complete sense to me, like being short-sighted all my life and finally getting a pair of glasses!
