A growing number of Canadians identify as neurodivergent. We apply a strengths-based approach to support you and your team to understand the differences in how people process information and develop strategies that can support successful interactions in your setting.
Sinneave pairs an autistic self-advocate and autism specialist who together host a virtual or in-person conversation with members of your organization. During the conversation, we will discuss the principles and how the easy-to-implement strategies encourage effective communication and collaboration specific to your workplace setting. Time is set aside for questions and further discussion specific to your needs.
The conversation is designed specifically for those interested in learning more about autism and neurodiversity and how differences in people’s thinking add incredible value across settings. The Six Principles are tailored specifically to three core settings:
Employers will gain an understanding of the strengths and challenges of neurodiversity and autism. Through discussion, your team will learn different perspectives and strategies that raise awareness and foster a more inclusive workplace for everyone.
Post-secondary educators, administrators, and student support team members will learn more about neurodiversity and autism. We share practical strategies and information regarding additional support services on- and off-campus.
Community independent living
Landlords and their teams are provided information about developing positive relationships with neurodiverse and autistic tenants. We offer recommendations about additional support services available in the community.
The Six Principles conversation is subsidized by The Sinneave Family Foundation. There is no cost for this service.
