I have a history of providing consultancy services for a range of organisations, both in the private sector and the public sector.
Services include: –
- Advice on how to make websites and other resources “dyslexia friendly”.
- Advice of how to engage with staff with dyslexia.
- Advice on how to ensure that recruitment and employment processes are sensitive to the needs of potential and existing staff.
- Advice on how to support people with dyslexia into the workforce.
- Advice on how to ensure that workplaces are sensitive to the needs of neurodiverse people – along with other people of diversity.
- Support for apprentices having difficulties passing text-based registration exams.
Clients include: –
- The Tertiary Education Commission in New Zealand
- The Corrections Service in New Zealand
- The Ministry of Social Development in New Zealand.
- The Human Resources Institute of New Zealand
- The New Zealand Defence Forces
- Literacy Aotearoa.
- Individual Polytechnics and other tertiary education providers
- Public sector organisations like the Plumbers. Gasfitters and Drainlayers Board and the Electrical Workers Registration Board.
Often the biggest challenge for both public and private sector organisations is a long legacy of poor understanding of just what dyslexia is – and how it impacts on people’s lives. Most importantly, most people are unaware of the many positive features of dyslexia.
