If you are autistic and/or neurodivergent, and would like to start or continue a career,

we would love to hear from you. All Specialisterne NI programmes are co-designed with our neurodivergent community. Programmes have ‘pick and mix’ options where you can choose how and when to take part, the parts that suit you best. The community at Specialisterne has found it is good to have 1-1 support, and that it is also useful to connect with and learn from each other. In fact we have seen that when people feel part of a community, and more confident, interviews are easier, and people are more likely to stay and progress in careers. Currently we are offering support to secure or continue on careers through empower, Capita, and ALL2gether programmes. You are very welcome to contact our team to find out more!

ALL2gether Autistic Community

ALL2gether is an autistic adult community which started in 2017 when autistic people said that while having a career is important, so is being with others, feeling more socially connected, and being part of a community. ALL2gether is designed by the people who take part, from programme aims, to interest topics, and has a ‘pick and mix’ style where you choose what parts are most of interest to you. ALL2gether currently is running virtually, with activities including weekly interest groups, board games, H.A.P.P.Y. wellbeing sessions, group workshops and autistic mentor sessions .
