Supporting you across the employment life cycle from recruitment to career progression are programs include:
NeuroInclusion Recruitment Program (partially funded by Job Access): It’s Your responsibility and we are here to help. Workplaces are mandated to recruit people with disabilities. Many workplaces struggle with the effective recruitment of neurodivergent individuals, leading to missed opportunities and or failure to meet contractual requirements. Meet your obligations and tap into the hidden potential of neurodivergent employees by supporting your new neurodivergent recruits during the first 90 days to ensure they are set up for success.
NeuroInclusion Organisational Development Program (fully funded through Job Access): Tab into Funding, we can show you how. Organisations are not utilising available federal funding to support neurodivergent employees, resulting in a lack of awareness and access to necessary support. Inclusivity measure that leads to increased productivity and reduces the risk of job burnout by providing on-the-job one to one support to neurodivergent employees and workplace training.
You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know Program (partially funded by Job Access): But we know psychological safety drives success. Organisations are mandated to mitigate psychosocial hazards. 50% of dyslexic employees don’t feel safe to disclose their difficulties. Leaving many dyslexics vulnerable and organisations at risk of litigation. This program aims to reduce psychosocial hazards by creating a safe environment for neurodivergent employees to seek help and thrive.

I just wanted to reach out to you because I honestly feel that if it wasn’t for our sessions, I wouldn't have had the belief that I could complete a Master’s degree. I joined so many dyslexic community pages for resources for myself. I then had the privilege to meet you. Up until that point, I didn’t know anyone with dyslexia who was in academia. Talking to you and hearing all that you had achieved, and the strategies we discussed allowed and motivate me to pursue my master's. I can say I have officially completed my master’s degree and now working as an accredited exercise physiologist! I just wanted to say thank you. You really inspired me and instilled belief in me and those words of ‘Your superpower might be resilience and persistence’ have since stuck with me and always will. Thank you for not only inspiring myself but other dyslexics. I wish I had someone like you advocating for me from primary school.
"Shae has been invaluable to my business and the creative and practical processes. She has made it feel achievable and given me direction in challenging times. She has felt like a dear friend in the process. Gentle, honest, and vulnerable but visionary within healthy boundaries. She knows that a business isn't just a business, from her own personal experiences. She has helped me make many big and important decisions. I know I wouldn't be where I am now without her expertise. Deepest gratitude."

"I feel very fortunate to have had Shae Wissell assigned as my mentor under the Victorian Chamber Business Recovery and Resilience Mentoring Scheme. Not only was Shae knowledgeable and helpful about almost any business topic I broached, but she was also tremendously approachable and always had something valuable and insightful to offer. After each session, Shae left me feeling inspired, motivated, and grateful (and equipped with resources)! I can’t recommend Shae enough as a compassionate, relatable, and knowledgeable coach who was genuinely invested in helping me achieve my business goals and dreams."
