We are currently reviewing and updating our workplace assessment process and are unable to offer dates for new assessments until early 2020. Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

If you would like us to contact you when workplace assessments are available again please let us know at training.enquiries@nas.org.uk.

In the meantime you can request our ‘Guidelines for supporting autistic people in the workplace’ by emailing training.enquiries@nas.org.uk.

Alternatively you may wish to contact Access to Work for support to receive a workplace assessment. Access to work is Government funding body. For further information please visit the GOV.UK website here.

Workplace assessments are an excellent first step when you have recruited a new employee on the autism spectrum or you have an existing employee who you think would benefit from further support.

A workplace assessment will help you to identify what adaptations could be made to ensure your employee is reaching their full potential, advise on management techniques and ways to communicate effectively. Workplace assessments address the following issues:

  • current issues and concerns 
  • description of current position and the expectations of the role 
  • social interaction 
  • communication 
  • flexibility of thought 
  • sensory issues 
  • recommendations for ongoing support
  • recommendations for reasonable adjustments to the workplace and role (in accordance with the Equality Act).

A member of our employment team will visit the workplace and meet with relevant members of staff (eg the autistic employee, managers, HR and colleagues as appropriate) to discuss any current or potential concerns. You will receive a written report within 15 working days of the assessment visit.


Assessments are priced at £1,420 + VAT.

  • Your employee will be provided with a year licence to the Brain in Hand assistive technology application. A personalised support programme that can be accessed when and where it’s needed, from an app on your employee’s phone.
