Employable Me is a powerful series following the lives of people with neurological conditions such as Autism and Tourette’s as they hunt for jobs that fit their unique abilities.
From Asperger’s to ADHD and Down’s Syndrome, the series will follow gifted people – many of whom have been trying to find work for years - as they try to overcome the hurdles of their condition, change employers’ perceptions, and land a job. At the series’ heart is a radical new emerging idea in science: that neurological conditions shouldn’t always be viewed in negative terms. Many conditions may mask talents and skills that employers would find invaluable if they only took time to discover them, or took a more inclusive approach to people with neurological disabilities.
Employable Me will deliver a range of bold, emotional, personal stories with real purpose where featured individuals will be judged in terms of what they can do rather than prejudged in terms of what they struggle to do.
