Martin Hallam-Benn

When Elsie, a member of staff, behaves oddly, is bullied and eventually faces disciplinary action Martin, the union representative, realises all is not as it seems. His previous experiences lead him to ask for an assessment, and Elsie is discovered to have Autism, Dyslexia and Asperger's. Attitudes towards her and her behaviours change, support is put in place for her - and the bullying stops. Union support, and the Equality Act 2010 may have helped Elsie - but what of all the other Elsies out there?
