Hey! Just signed up to get employment help from Scope. Has anyone found it useful?

I have ASD and dyscalculia and never been able to stick to a job. Also have depression and anxiety.

    Hi @Demiboy94 :) 

    I may be biased, but I've heard good things! @Shuv27 may be able to tell you about their experience.

    Firstly, I think it is very brave of you to talk of your challenges.  Me personally, I have MS so I have my own challenges. Just saying that so we are on an even basis.
    I have found the Support to Work Service tremendously useful.  Reasons for me saying so are as follows:
    1) My interactions with the outside world are limited, so just interacting with my advisor Isaac, is something I genuinely enjoy.
    2) Isaac has provided me with a step by step plan.  Every week he asks me to carry out certain tasks, and as I complete them, I know I'm one step closer to that job.
    3) My confidence has increased a lot, which means when the time comes for me to deal with my aforementioned interactions with the outside world, I will be able to do so. This is the reason I'm very grateful for the existence of Scope.

    In conclusion, I must stress I am not a Scope employee.  I am merely a member of the Scope online community.  But I strongly believe I am in a better position to launch an entry into the employment market!
    And I spent the past 10 minutes typing about it, so I really do value Scope!

    All the best,

    @Shuv27
