I have no experience in supporting a person with learning disabilities or autism. What if I get it wrong? If the match with the job is good and the right support is in place, a person with learning disabilities or autism can work as well as anyone else. What’s really essential is the kind of supportive line management you would give to anyone in your team. We’re there for you, at the end of the phone whenever you have any concerns. We’ll complement that with as much guidance and training as you need to understand and work with the support needs of your intern.
