This series follows Britain’s most extraordinary job seekers as they seek to prove that having a neurological condition, such as Tourette’s or autism, shouldn’t make them unemployable.
At the series’ heart is a radical new emerging idea in science: that neurological conditions shouldn’t always be looked at in negative terms. By working with experts such as Director of the Autism Research Centre at Cambridge University, Professor Simon Baron-Cohen, and occupational psychologist, Nancy Doyle, the job seekers are shown how the strengths and unique skillsets that accompany neuro-developmental conditions can be harnessed in order to help land them their dream job.
