Specialisterne NI highlight employability for local Austism candidates

Specialisterne NI held a recent conference in east Belfast to raise awareness of the valuable service we offer.

Delegates at the Specialisterne conference in east Belfast were tested on their puzzle solving skills on Tuesday.

The idea was to show that it can be a natural attribute for people with autism, which in turn could make them perfect employees for the IT sector.

But often those puzzle solving and pattern identifying skills can transfer into the creative industries too.

The conference was aimed at bringing potential employers together with potential employees – who may have autism.

The local UTV news were in attendance at the event and there media report can be viewed here http://www.u.tv/News/2015/03/31/Charity-highlights-employability-in-people-with-autism-34636
