Who we are

There are more than 2 million people with disabilities registered in Thailand. Fewer than 25% of them are employed. We are an experienced team of trainers and inclusion specialists dedicated to changing this. We offer award-winning education programmes for young neurodivergent people, run inclusive business models such as cafes, and offer consultancy to help organisations diversify their workforce. We established the Neurodiversity at Work Research centre, Southeast Asia’s first ever research centre dedicated to understanding neurodiversity in the workplace, in partnership with Sasin School of Management. 

How your Business can Connect with us

We can support your business with becoming more inclusive. Use our consultancy services so we can help you reap the benefits of hiring people with disabilities – research shows organisations which hire a diverse workforce have a reduced staff turnover and increase in profits. Join us as a business partner and we can coach you through hiring our graduates. Or outsource basic administrative tasks to our business service centre.

Our Education Programmes

Our award-winning vocational training centres in Bangkok are open to learners aged 11 and up who would benefit from an alternative to mainstream education.
