1) You can provide better customer service
It is estimated that around one in every one hundred Australians are diagnosed as autistic.
That’s quite a significant proportion of the population that would benefit from access to more supportive, inclusive businesses and organisations. It also represents a large section of the community with whom businesses and organisations could build valuable relationships.
2) Recognition as an Autism Friendly Business
It’s always nice to be recognised for doing something positive, the real value in public recognition for being an autism friendly business is that it can make you more welcoming and inclusive to more members of your community.
When 75% or more of your workforce has completed the online free autism awareness course training, your business is eligible to be listed in the Autism Friendly Directory – an online resource for people on the spectrum to find businesses that are welcoming and inclusive.
Listed businesses and organisations may also display Autism Friendly Charter branding that publicly shows customers that they are autism friendly supporters.
3) It’s free and it’s easy
