In the award-winning BBC 2 series, Employable Me, inspiring people prove that having a neurological condition shouldn’t make them unemployable. Last night’s show featured 26-year-old Alan, who has high-functioning autism, and 46-year-old Erica, with Asperger Syndrome.
To help them prepare for work, and to support them whilst in work, the Employable Me team gave them Brain in Hand.
We caught up with Alan and Erica to find out about the challenges they faced starting work, the difference Brain in Hand has made, and their plans for the future. See what they had to say – watch the video below.
Brain in Hand is available for students at university and is funded through the Disabled Students Allowance – get in touch with the Disability Advisory Service if you want more information.
