Guy carries out strategy coaching to help people manage the impact of neurodiversity (specifically Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and ADHD) in the workplace. A few months ago, he started his own YouTube channel to help spread awareness of neurodivergent conditions and assist people in overcoming barriers. On his channel he provides helpful tips, discusses motivational stories and aims to increase understanding of those who are not aware of the differences of each type of neurodiversity.
"The purpose of my YouTube content is mainly to raise awareness about dyslexia and other associated neurodiverse conditions.
I do it on YouTube because so many of the people that I talk to say that YouTube is, or has been, their preferred learning medium.
It is mainly to help people think about what dyslexia is, the range of characteristics, the overlap with other conditions, and some ideas to manage some of the challenges.
Because some people are anxious about disclosing their dyslexia, I am hoping that more public awareness will ‘normalise’ it and make it more acceptable, and so put the focus on dealing with the challenges – not hiding them or ignoring them.
Being ‘positive about dyslexia’ is the rallying cry!"
