About this session

We’re all experiencing a period of increasing uncertainty and change.  As social distancing measures have come into effect, more and more organisations across the globe have made the move to remote working – and for some, this is a completely new concept and way of working.
For your staff with neurodiverse conditions, such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, autism, ADHD, and Asperger’s – the new way of working can be particularly overwhelming. Texthelp can help.

What to expect

A 30 minute virtual session.

In this virtual Link and Learn session, Texthelp will highlight some of the everyday communication challenges faced by neurodiverse colleagues, and explore how best to overcome these in their new remote working environment. You will be introduced Texthelp’s powerful literacy and productivity support tool, Read&Write, that’s already helping millions of people with varying needs – all over the world – to work smarter, more efficiently, and more accurately.
