Specialisterne NI, a recruitment and training consultancy that specialises in social communication difference, invites people with social communication difference such as Autism or Aspergers to attend Lego Workshops in March 2016.
An OFMDFM Central Good Relations initiative, the Workshops aim to better prepare you to enter or progress in the Northern Ireland work community.
By building Lego Robots in small teams, you demonstrate skills in completing a systematic task, as well as self and team management. We then share what we see with you and where appropriate use this information to match you to job roles, or to help you prepare for future job roles.
Following the assessment you will be invited to a one day workshop on 22 March where a professional actor will role play instances in the workplace where communication has been challenging. Participants observe the role plays and have the opportunity to consider communication in the workplace, including workarounds and what has worked for other people with social communication difference such as Autism in the workplace.
Places are limited. To book, visit: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/lego-workshops-tickets-22484695329
Update: March Lego Workshops are now fully booked and we have started a waiting list. If you are interested in attending March or future workshops please email firstname.lastname@example.org
