PCS members who have completed Stage 1 Neurodiversity training will be invited to attend this course.
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.
Please contact your PCS regional training officer or branch secretary if you would like to register for this course.

armed with safety pins and cigs
Slipped out the back to an all-night rave
Es and whizz and misbehaves

Ever wondered why only 16% of autistic adults have a full-time job?
He worked alone, not a team player
Not a keeper or a stayer
Didn’t fit in, not really our sort
Talked about boring stuff not sport
We had to let him go
