  • help employers understand the adjustments that an autistic person may need in the workplace
  • inform employers about their duties to autistic people under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA)
  • provide information about the support programmes available to both employers and autistic employees
  • signpost employers to further information and advice on autism.
