Podcast #116 Dyslexia in the Workplace with Katrina Cochrane

This week, we had a lovely conversation with Kartina Cochrane, the head of education and policy for the British Dyslexia Association. Katrina has a wide range of knowledge regarding dyslexia for the past few decades but we focused on what’s happening with dyslexia in the workplace.

As dyspraxic herself, Katrina was exposed to the struggles and confusion of neurodiverse workers in the workplace. She later on specialised in dyslexia teaching and became part of the British Dyslexia Association. 

In the UK, Katrina observed that in the last 10 years, dyslexia in the workplace has improved more than in schools. Companies are learning how to accommodate people with dyslexia as they understand that it can be a good investment in their companies. Listen to the podcast as Katrina also discussed what a workplace needs assessment is and how it is assessed.
