Dyslexia Support

Supporting Neuro-Differences in the Workplace

Around 10-15% of the workforce have a hidden disability, or a specific learning difficulty, known commonly as dyslexia. If we take into account all specific learning difficulties and different ways of working, this percentage is much higher. Additionally, there may be certain roles/ fields where there is a higher than average proportion of the workforce with a learning difference.

Do you know your workforce? Do you know what hidden talents you could be missing out on because an employee has a different way of working? Are you unconsciously limiting someone’s potential? These are some of the questions which could be of concern if you have not explored the hidden potential of people with neuro-differences.

Having a diagnosis of a specific learning difficulty can be a life changing experience, if the correct support is provided. Often after a diagnosis, the individual and employer are left thinking, what does this mean?

That is where individual training and coaching can come in.

What is strategy training / coaching?

This training and coaching programme is designed to help employees with dyslexia as well as their managers understand the strengths and weaknesses of their unique working style.

  • Needs-based – Individual needs-based training for employees to understand the strengths and weaknesses of their unique working style
  • User-led – adaptive to the individual’s working style and pace
  • Reflective and developmental – through the users own experience, they gain more knowledge about what works for them

We evaluate the effectiveness of all our coaching and training interventions using standardised and validated outcome measurement tools, enabling client organisations to track the return on their investment.

Why does it work?

Puts the user in the driving seat so they can discover what works best for them, as opposed to a traditional educational and workplace experience which does not always cater for individuals with different ways of approaching learning and work.

The benefits to your business include:

  • Improved confidence of employees
  • Improved efficiency and performance
  • Finding better ways of doing things which may benefit more employees as well as the organisation as a whole
  • Gives the manager ideas about how to work with people who have different styles of working, including development and training provisions

Please note that all sessions are confidential and we do not provide feedback to the employer regarding any specific issues that are discussed during the sessions without the express consent of the coachee.
