Neurodiversity Works




Championing Workforce Inclusion

Specialists employed within this program provide free support and education for Queensland employers to help build confidence to successfully hire autistic and neurodivergent adults across varied industries in Southeast Queensland. They also work with employers to help them retain current neurodivergent staff. 

Key aspects of the Neurodiversity Works program include:

  • Assessment of an employer’s capacity, processes and support requirements to effectively hire and retain neurodivergent candidates.
  • Education and training for businesses and their staff about autism and neurodivergence.
  • Understanding the culture and recruitment needs of each business partner and applying a collaboration framework to match organisation needs against those of the potential employee.
  • Review of recruitment, interview and onboarding practice and recommendations provided that are appropriate for neurodivergent candidates. 
  • Identifying neurodiversity champions within businesses to influence diversity and inclusion. 
  • Helping neurodivergent employees in the workplace.


The Neurodiversity Works program is funded through the Workforce Connect Fund, powered by the Queensland Government’s Good people. Good jobs: Queensland Workforce Strategy 2022-2032.
