Training and Mentoring
Employment can be extremely challenging for individuals with autism, ADHD and other related conditions and it is very difficult to find people within the business who fully understand your challenges and how to help you succeed in your employment.
The Integrative Cognitive Diversity Framework is designed to understand the unique cognitive makeup of the individual, this explains WHY you are struggling without needing to reference any diagnosis. Although if you would like us to describe the underlying issues behind your particular condition, we an do.
Through identifying WHY an individual’s difficulties occur, it enables us to be much more precise in understanding how to overcome challenges using both targeted adjustments and your own individual strengths that may not be recognised or being used in the best possible way.
This means Aspiedent can tailor training and coaching around you.
Areas in which Aspiedent can support you include:
- Understanding social interaction and communication
- Identifying strengths and overcoming weaknesses
- Managing Sensory Issues
- Career Development and interviewing skills
- Accessing Continued Professional Development
If you feel that Aspiedent can support you in your current employment please get in touch for an initial discovery conversation.
Our Workplace Assessments are designed to help managers and staff in the workplace understand each other better and/or resolve their differences. A workplace assessment makes it much more likely that an employee will keep their job.
The key differences in our approach are:
- We are able to analyse beyond the symptoms and identify the underlying issues that cause them.
- We analyse the interactions between the various underlying issues.
- We are just as interested in strengths as we are in weaknesses because we build a complete picture of the cognitive make-up of an individual.
Similar symptoms can be caused by different underlying issues and this often leads to ineffective recommended reasonable adjustments. An in depth analysis of your cognitive make up is required to get to the bottom of the issues, that you are experiencing. Aspiedent’s reasonable adjustments are tailored to your specific difficulties and not to symptoms nor to any diagnosis, if there is one.
A workplace assessment is often life-changing because you understand yourself better and how you tick differently from those around you. This can be further explored via 1-1 training and mentoring sessions.
During a workplace assessment the aim will be to develop a deep understanding of the following:
- Any sensory issues
- How you think and learn
- How you process information
- Interests along with focus and attention
- How you tick emotionally
- Executive functioning
We don’t just write about each of these categories, we also work out what is causing what and how they interact with each other. Sometimes the interactions create excellence and sometimes they create problems. Like everyone else, you have strengths and weaknesses and the combination makes you the unique person you are.
By taking this in depth approach, Aspiedent provides a report that will not only explain what is happening and recommend reasonable adjustments but will also tell you ‘WHY’ issues are occurring and ‘WHY’ the reasonable adjustments will work.
