Learn how to interview, manage and work alongside people with Social Communication Difference such as being on the Autistic Spectrum.
We introduce a framework within which to consider behaviour that will contribute to decision making which has reduced bias.
By doing so we help you increase:
understanding of social communication differences in the workplace
awareness of different world experiences which may contribute to employee performance
confidence to give feedback to employees with social communication difference
We have considerable experience in supporting people with social communication differences such as being on the Autistic Spectrum in professional roles in N Ireland. Our team work with Actor and Illustrator Patrick Sanders to role play true-to-life situations. According to Learning Development theorists Moreno (2012) and St George et al (1999) drama based learning using the sophisticated improvisational skills of professional actors helps develop the empathetic communication skills of participants with their colleagues, clients and customers. We think its more fun too!
What others say about us
Very insightful course which I will use not only in dealing with people with a social communication difference but with all my staff.
Superb thought provoking and informative training. Encourages empathy, understanding and acceptance. I particularly enjoyed how we were encouraged to view Autism as a different way of being rather than a deficient way of being. Excellent delivery, excellent PowerPoint and excellent acting!
Very informative course. Excellent delivery. Highlighted why some people may be deemed ‘different’.
