The ACAS guide to Neurodiversity in the workplace
Oxfordshire councillor shares her story of adult Autism diagnosis
For the 8th and final part of our series, we picked two resources which explore the topic neurodiversity from different angles: one is a guide to understanding neurodiverse colleagues and the support employers can offer; the other is the lived experience of an Oxfordshire politician who was diagnosed with autism in her adulthood.
We hope you'll find these resources useful and that you enjoyed our Countdown To Christmas series!
Here is an excerpt from Alexandrine's story:
"Alexandrine Kantor, 33, who represents Wheatley on South Oxfordshire District Council, was diagnosed with autism only earlier this year.
Many Autism diagnoses are made in childhood, but it is becoming increasingly common for them to be made in adulthood.
Ms Kantor, who was brought up in France, said the diagnosis came after she began to research the ways the condition manifests in women differently to men."
