Interested in inclusive recruitment, mental health in your workplace or neurodiversity? You can find out more about these and other topics by signing up for the next Disability Confident webinars.

Facilitated by Professor Amanda Kirby (CEO of Do-IT, an organisation supporting neurodiversity), the webinars are delivered by Disability Confident Leaders, Do-IT, Seetec Pluss, KPMG and AdviserPlus, and sponsored by Microsoft.

Introduction: For some people there are barriers to oral communication that can stop them from engaging in employment and show-casing their talents.

2.5 million people in the UK have speech, language and communication challenges and around 1% are adults with Autism. Ensuring effective two-way communication means better engagement with employees and customers. This webinar will provide practical inclusive approaches for employers to ensure accessibility for employees with language and communication-based challenges and how to make reasonable adjustments.
