There are roadblocks a neurodiverse person may face before they even think about applying for a position within a for-profit or nonprofit organization. During this webinar, Kolleen Sullivan will discuss the skills that employers look for in their employees and ways in which an individual can gain experience using those skills to best support them in the workforce. Beyond the skills that will be discussed, best practices will be shared regarding when, how, who, and if an individual should disclose their diagnosis to an employer and what individual support systems can do to guide them through this process.
