Using first hand experience to support Neurodivergent people and help organisations reach their potential
Here at 4Neurodiversity (4ND), we provide a range of training courses and support, sharing lessons we’ve learned first-hand to make sure all sides get the most out of their day.
Neurodiversity in the workplace
A highly motivated group of people who naturally see things differently can challenge the status quo – getting you where you need to be.
That’s why more and more businesses and organisations are waking up to the benefits of a Neurodiverse workforce.
Are you aware of common pitfalls and how then can be avoided to everyone’s benefit?
Are you sympathetic to the differing demands of your workforce and customers?
Are you compliant with all legislation (eg Equality Act 2010)?
Are you maximising the potential of your whole workforce?
If the answer is no, or if you would like to understand more about 15% of the population, we have a range of training courses and support to make sure that your staff are able to reach their potential.
What is Neurodiversity?
Neurodiversity is a term that captures a spectrum of diagnoses around, but not exclusively to autism and autistic people.
Autistic people typically have a strong skill set that is becoming more and more appreciated across several industries.
We offer various kinds and levels of support to both:

“Provided an incredible knowledge base and understanding from different sources, i.e. personal experience, literature and studies to explain and demonstrate Autism, Angie does NOT provide textbook, stock answers but those grounded in the reality of Autistic lived experience”
Sharon Elley, Lecturer in Sociology and Social Policy
“I was very impressed by Angie. She was thoughtful, caring and intelligent and wants to make things better for Autistic people. She came along wanting to find better ways of working that will make a difference to others. She asked how we can do things differently and helped us to ask this too. It was just nice to have her around and a joy to spend time in her company”
Clinical Psychologist, Adult Autism Service
“Angie explained some of the difficulties which she and other autistic people come across daily such as heightened sensitivity, interoception and proprioception, having knowledge of these will certainly develop my future practice in social work.
I feel Angie’s openness in sharing her lived experience was brave and a fantastic insight, a few of us spoke later in the day about how inspiring Angie was by the amount of work she does in order to educate others about autism”
Amna Perwaiz, Student Social Worker
