Autistic people make brilliant employees. Alongside their individual talents, it’s widely reported employees on the spectrum bring above-average skills in accuracy, reliability, conscientiousness and persistence.  Yet only 15% of those who want to work are in employment.

Last week we were delighted to join Channel 4’s Alan Gardner, star of The Autistic Gardener documentary, Jamie Knight, and sidekick Lion, journalist Dean Beadle, and University of Lincoln’s Dr Niko Kargas at Focus’ conference discussing employment and autism.

If you missed the conference and would like to find out more, please download our employment brochure or read how we helped Sarah Alexander, 30 from Hampshire, successfully stay in a job for the first time.

  • Brain in Hand has helped me to solve all sorts of problems by myself, which has really built my confidence. For example, I have an issue with eye contact when I talk with friends. To solve this, I plan in advance what I can say to a person, which is something I put into my Brain in Hand.

  • I wish that there had been something like this when I was a headteacher of a challenging school for those individuals who were either autistic or suffered from anxiety. It would have added another level of support.
