Our Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the most common frequently asked questions. Please contact us if there’s anything else you’d like to know.


Do I need a diagnosis to access your support?

No! No diagnosis is necessary. We believe in meeting needs, more than labels. 

Our purpose is to facilitate the change that is needed, with the client’s best interests at heart. We recognise that trust and a good rapport are essential to the coaching relationship, so this is a priority in all our work.

Your willingness to engage is the only real requirement.

I’m not sure this is right for me – how can I find out more?

Can I access funds through Autism Forward?

Autism Forward will fund adults with an autism diagnosis who are in search of employment.

Will the Neurodiversity Profile Mapping tool give me a diagnosis?

No. The DoIT profile will give you a better understanding of yourself, your strengths, the areas that you may find more challenging, and some ways to manage these.

Profile mapping cannot be used as ‘proof’ of diagnosed needs, but by enhancing your understanding of your wiring and current needs, provides actionable guidance to support your wellbeing and performance at work.

Why can't I go directly to DoIT to complete the profile screening?

You can. However, you will get a less comprehensive report that way.

The scope of the reporting provided via licensed providers such as WayMakers is  more in-depth and includes features not available to those purchasing an individual license directly.

In addition, WayMakers develop the information offered by the DoIT tool one step further. During our consultation with you, we unpack the DoIT findings, present these in a visually accessible format, and work with you to create tailored, actionable support strategies to address your individual challenges.

This brings together your understanding of your profile with the practical steps that answer your “what now” questions.

We currently have funding to subsidise the cost of this service to £192 for a limited time.

I have learning support needs as well: can you support me?

If you have significant learning needs, we may not be the best people to support you. Our expertise does not lie in working with people with significant learning needs.

If you are in Devon, you may find that the Reaching for Independence team are better placed to work with you. You can find out more by calling:

Is WayMakers a Christian organisation?
