This is auticon

For many people, developing their own potential is associated with challenges. We know that for people with autism, certain social interactions, spatial details, or sensory stimuli in the work environment can make successful work difficult. Correspondingly many people with autism find it difficult to gain a foothold in the job market despite their immense professional competence.

We change that: The specific cognitive strengths and competencies of many autistic people are economically and socially useful and far too valuable to let them lie idle. We enable people on the autism spectrum to work in a profession that does justice to their actual qualifications. In our company philosophy, the human being is at the center of all our activities: Not only do autistic people have to adapt to their environment, but companies also benefit from adapting to working with people on the autism spectrum by responding to our autistic colleagues and creating autism-friendly working environments together with us. With understanding, awareness and know-how we create an environment that enables our consultants – consistently people on the autism spectrum – to call up top performance in accordance with their own high-quality standards. With tailor-made solutions, we ensure that each employee can optimally contribute his or her personal skills and interests and develop them at his or her own pace. Specially trained job coaches and project managers accompany our consultants in their daily work and project work.

What our job coaches do for you

  • Analysis of the client’s workplace and project requirements and appropriate preparation with the consultant
  • Team briefing with the customer on autism
  • Preliminary discussion with the team about strengths and individual characteristics of the consultant
  • Identification and avoidance strategies for things that can be avoided and may cause unnecessary stress in the workplace
  • Support in the planning and implementation of the work commute
  • Enabling adjustments in the work environment, if necessary and/or possible
  • Mediating feedback between customer and consultant – type and quantity of support can be decided by the consultant himself
  • Any further individual support as required

… and our project managers

Our experienced project managers lead our consultants in technical and professional matters and support them in their personal development. The focus is always on individual strengths and interests. 

The support is always tailored to the consultant’s requirements at the workplace. The aim is to support the consultants as much as necessary and as desired. It is essential that our colleagues learn to recognize and deal with their needs independently.

“We have back-office support from project managers and job coaches. This takes off some of the pressure if a difficult situation arises. The job coaches encourage consultants to take regular time off, which helps to avoid the build up of anxiety or sensory overload. They also assist with prioritising tasks and ensure the workplace environment is comfortable.”
