Seek­ing more than just a job

Western Times - - LIFE -

Em­ploy­able Me, ABC, Tues­day at 8.30pm

IT’S hard enough find­ing a job nowa­days, but when you have a dis­abil­ity it can be al­most im­pos­si­ble.

Em­ploy­able Me fol­lows peo­ple with neu­ro­log­i­cal con­di­tions such as autism, OCD and Tourette Syn­drome as they search for mean­ing­ful em­ploy­ment.

This up­lift­ing and in­sight­ful se­ries draws on ex­perts to un­cover peo­ple’s hid­den skills and to match job seek­ers to roles that can har­ness their strengths.

Neuro-psych test­ing re­veals their skill sets, re­veal­ing as­tound­ing cog­ni­tive bril­liance in some.

Each story is told from the par­tic­i­pant’s own per­spec­tive, as they share openly with view­ers.

We all de­serve a role in so­ci­ety and that’s what this show is about – striv­ing to be­long and play your part.
