The Westminster AchieveAbility Commission on dyslexia & neurodivergence will investigate the barriers to employment and identify recruitment processes that disadvantage neurodivergent people (autism, ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, asperger’s). The aim is to find out how recruitment and probation processes might be improved and highlight good practice in these areas.
This report will make recommendations to the Government to remove barriers to employment and identify recruitment processes that disadvantage neurodivergent people. The Commission will feed into the government goal of ‘Halving the Disability Employment Gap’ by 2020. As dyslexic people, and those who are neurodivergent, represent the highest percentage of adults who are disabled (British Dyslexia Association) this Commission is vital in order to represent the issues for this community, as well as revealing their intellect, value and strengths within the workplace.
