Established in 2015, Specialisterne Australia assists businesses in recruiting and supporting people on the autism spectrum. We work with companies seeking to diversify their workforce and help to find talented autistic job seekers / candidates looking for a career in that area, for mutually beneficial outcomes. We recognise that autistic individuals offer a range of skills that can be of benefit to any job. We use a unique process to assess potential employees that removes the barriers experienced by autistic adults in the traditional recruitment process. We then work to support the individual and employee in their transition and build the capacity of the employer to support their autistic staff members. We help workplaces to understand the unique strengths of their employee/s on the spectrum and implement strategies across all levels of business and teams including line managers and colleagues to help their autistic colleagues utilise their skills to be successful and valued for their work in an inclusive and supportive workplace.4
This free online course is suitable for everyone who potentially interacts or engages with Autistic people and communities.
