Kimel Solutions - What is our "why?"
Only 16% of Autistic and Neurodivergent People Are In Paid Employment!
You read that correctly. That is not a statistic from 1921, that is the current statistic from 2021.
There are many reasons why Neurodivergent People are not in paid employment;
Lack of understanding
A Failed Interviewing and Recruitment System
The amount of misconceptions surrounding Neurodivergent People
Neurodivergent people fall under the umbrella of Neurodiversity, a model of understanding and acceptance for those who are different - Autistic, ADHD, Dyslexia, ADD, Dyscalculia etc.
Many workplaces complete "Autism Awareness" training sessions that only widen gaps and reduce understanding.
Here at Kimel, we want to incubate new attitudes, fresh approaches and create innovative and inclusive spaces. From our personal and professional experiences, Team Kimel has done just that. We aren't the standard "lets train people on autism on what it looks like to the majority", our training has been developed in partnership with Neurodivergent professionals, speakers and consultants who live and breathe Neurodiversity.
