People with Autism face many challenges and barriers on a daily basis; from sensory stimulation to anxieties around social interactions. Thus, engaging in employment can be a huge difficulty for many people with Autism. 80% of people with Autism are either unemployed or underemployed. 77% of those unemployed are actively seeking employment and each person with Autism applies for six times more jobs than neurotypicals before obtaining employment.

A consultant from myAccessHub will complete an assessment on your business to commence establishing how accessible the premises is to people with Autism. This assessment will take approximately one hour to complete. Prior to the assessment we will have forwarded you a set of standards which outline the areas we will assess. These standards have been developed in parallel with national and international best practices. Post assessment we disseminate a report which provides recommendations for future development.
Upon completion of the assessment phase we will then commence staff training. Training will be provided onsite to managers; all other staff can be trained via our online training modules. Both onsite and online training takes approximately one hour thirty minutes to complete. If you wish for all staff to be trained on site we can accommodate this also. Staff will be certified for "Autism Awareness" upon completion of the course by myAccessHub.
