Workability Video Series
You can’t be what you can’t see!
The Workability Interviews series was created to give young people with disabilities, neurodiversity and mental health the access to role models sharing their experiences and knowledge to showcase what is possible.
Series One & Two
A series of 16 fun and informative videos provide students with disability, Neurodiverse and Mental Health and their families a chance to hear with people with lived experience as they share their employment and education experiences.
In each video, you will hear different tips and advice to help students learn about navigating self-advocacy, talking about your ability, workplace modifications and using your strengths.

Or a great video to start with is the chat with Kai.
Kai is an entrepreneurial young person with Dyslexia and Autism. Kai started making fidgets in 2017 at age 11 due to being teased at school for using colourful, kiddie like fidgets. Determined to find something suitable and stylish for himself, he turned to the metal! Soon enough, instead of being teased - he got requests for them! Kai, together with his parents, started going to markets with them, and it quickly became evident how significant the need was. The rest, as they say, is HISTORY.
