A relatively new term, neurodiversity, refers to the diversity of cognitive functioning in humans.
Historically, neurodivergent conditions such as ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, autism spectrum condition were framed as individual disorders with the belief that the person is suffering from a deficit or dysfunction in their mental processing. This framing was found to be deeply flawed with recent research showing that a binary diagnosis could not be justified as everyone lies somewhere along a continuum. At Colourfield, we recognise that neurodivergent conditions co-exist and overlap with one another. And that each individual will have their own unique pattern of strengths and sets of challenges.
Person Centred Strategy Coaching
Neurodiversity exists differently in all of us. Although these neurological differences may present certain challenges, they also signify remarkable abilities. Those abilities are often overlooked because of the focus placed on weaknesses.
At Colourfield, we believe that every person is unique and has the potential to achieve greatness. Our coaches are well placed to nurture and bring out that potential by remediating weaknesses and building on strengths.
Assistive technology training
We offer assistive technology training on a wide range of products including Dragon, Claro Read, Texthelp Read & Write, MindView, Inspiration, Sonocent audio notetaker, Global AutoCorrect and Livescribe. At Colourfield we take pride in the quality of our training. Our trainers not only have expertise in the products but also specialise in aligning the training with work related tasks. We believe that being able to contextualise the training to the needs of the individual is paramount to the whole learning experience.
E-Learning training courses For employers
Neurodiversity Training (for hr personnel, managers and team leaders)
In general, office practices and indoor workspaces are designed for neurotypical conformity and do not usually accommodate neurodivergence. That's not to say that they were designed that way intentionally. It's more likely to be down to a lack of awareness and understanding around most forms of neurodivergence. This eLearning course is designed for HR professionals, managers and leaders who want to learn more about neurodiversity, the benefits for their organisation, and how to support and bring out the best in neurodivergent employees.
Neurodiversity awareness training (for all staff)
This eLearning course is designed for all staff to build general awareness of neurodiversity, discover the benefits of a neurodiverse workforce and learn basic workplace etiquette that will make neurodivergent colleagues feel more at ease. The course focuses on the four most prevalent conditions associated with neurodiversity. These are Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ADHD and Autism Spectrum Condition.
