We have had the privilege of supporting many people to become more effective in the workplace over many years, helping them to overcome some of the challenges they have faced as a result of disability and building their confidence in their own abilities. Here are a few of the comments we have received back from them.
I need the Dragon software due to Carpal Tunnel syndrome. I am not the most technically minded person and it can take me a while to get used to a new system. However, this training was pitched at just the right level. Petra used language I could understand and explained everything very clearly. This training has enabled me to use the Dragon software straightaway with confidence. This has changed my working life as writing and typing had become very difficult and slow due to the pain, aching and weakness in my hands. I can now work more efficiently and effectively than I did before I had the problem with my hands. - HR - 2021
To understand dyslexia, and expectations for self and others and my own coping mechanisms. I found the SWOT analysis was and Goal setting was extremely helpful - AN - 2021
I found the training to be very valuable with lots of opportunities to ask questions which made it enjoyable and it was a very informative training. This has met more than my expectations both personally and professionally. Anon - 2021
The trainer was polite, knowledgeable and delivered the training at a good pace. - TM - 2019
Before they commenced, I was skeptical that there would be any benefit from these sessions. I must wholeheartedly go back on that as I have subsequently found that they were actually immensely useful.
Our sessions gave me the opportunity to reflect on my working practices and hurdles which have been accumulated over a lifetime of ignorance of an undiagnosed disability that has caused me to struggle for many years with poor organisation and feelings of inadequacy.
I am really happy to have had the opportunity to be able to develop a broad range of new skills and tips with your help. Whilst I am not professing to have become the most accomplished and organised person in my organisation, I am certainly in a position to be more productive and in control of my working day.
I have also been able to take away some of the benefits of our work and have shared some elements of it with colleagues who have also now been able to take a different approach to some part of their own tasks.
I am very grateful for your patient, professional and good-humored approach and it made the whole experience one that I valued. - Greg 2019
I feel that the sessions I have received from Enabling Technology, have helped me to grow in confidence, gain a better understanding of Dyslexia and become a more productive worker. This is due to the techniques and strategies they have taught me and the resources they have given me, along with their expert tuition. - LM - April 2018
I found the training really useful and applicable to my day-to-day working career. I found Dave to be really approachable and very responsive to my learning needs to ensure that I could get the most out of the training, without being bogged down with computers.
I particularly found the training useful around reading, concentration and time management. I still use the pomodoro technique now! - PS - 2017 (Probation Officer)
My experience of dyslexia support was very positive because it gave me the tools and enabled me to organise my work better than before the training. Petra was an excellent mentor and teacher. Her personal experience of dyslexia made me feel at ease as a disabled worker. She was empathetic of all the barriers I face as a disabled worker. She did not make me feel uncomfortable or judge me for getting things wrong. In fact she was aware of the areas I lacked confidence in and would recall and share her experiences to make you feel at ease.
I would highly recommend Petra as a teacher in this area as she has definitely got the skills and knowledge to work with dyslexic workers. - Social Worker - 2017
