In Conversation with… Andrew Carpenter

Virtual via MS Teams.

Andrew Carpenter is autistic and the Autism Lead for NHSE in the London Region.  He’s previously worked in local authorities, where he chaired a disability staff network and completed work on including neuro-divergence and increasing understanding. 

In his talk, Andrew will cover how we should talk about autism, bust some common myths, look at sensory needs and what that means for getting the environment right, and also think about potential accommodations in the workplace.  There will be a chance to ask questions throughout and hopefully some discussion time at the end.
