Inclusivity In The World Of Tech: The Effectiveness Of Autism At Work Programmes

There is often a focus on specifically recruiting autistic people over any of the other neurodivergent identities, suggesting that businesses doing this have bought into the savant stereotype of Autism but haven’t taken the time to learn about the workplace benefits of neurodivergent brains in general.

From experience working in the neurodiversity field and dealing with all kinds of large companies we have seen that women, Black people and people of color are excluded from inclusion efforts at a greater level than white men.

The Psychology of Ableism and Communication

"Accommodations disabled people fought for and were denied—like working from home, telemedicine, and grocery delivery —have now suddenly been adopted by society at large. When the majority of society is disabled by conditions surrounding the pandemic, accommodations suddenly seem justifiable to the public."

We must remember this lesson and keep these adaptations when the pandemic is over.

On Canada Day, we must acknowledge the discoveries of the hundreds of unmarked gravesites of children who died in residential schools across Canada. We recognize the mistreatment of our indigenous communities as part of Canada's history and want to show our support and pay respect to those who are grieving. 🧡

“Sometimes they put labels that we're not capable to do a lot of stuff, but we are capable. Just give us a chance and we'll show them.”

The students at Galileo Adult Centre work together to make visors for those working to fight COVID-19. They say they get a rush from giving back to those who gave so much during the pandemic.

Council Post: Autism Awareness: Six Steps For Greater Inclusion In The Workplace

Many people on the spectrum might not make it through the interview process simply because it is not designed for them. They might not apply for a job in the first place, even if they are highly qualified, because they may read the job description very literally and opt-out if they don’t meet every point.

This article explains some general steps - such as looking for talent in the right places - for companies to create a more inclusive culture for people with autism.

There have been surveys to ask about online learning, as well as surveys for parents in general, but not a specific survey for Ontario families in Special Education. Families whose children have IEPs (Individual Education Plans) or specialized programming are being left with questions unanswered regarding supports, modified learning, and in many cases, complete exclusion. Please take 6-8 minutes to fill out this survey on Ontario Special Education: COVID-19 Edition. TIA
