Learning difficulties

Why do employers often ignore people with learning disabilities who are perfectly capable of doing a good job? What does business need to do to make it easier for them to get hired?

Lesley Curwen talks to Lisa Hopkins, Executive Director of Practice Development at Dimensions which provides support for people with learning disabilities and autism, and Bishop Fred Mwale, from the Zambia Institute of Special Education about new moves to get intellectually impaired teenagers into work.

And Dr Rosalind Bergemann, a change manager, describes how she discovered she had Asperger syndrome, a developmental disorder which affects communication and social skills.
