Neurodiversity — natural variations in neurological function among people, e.g., autism spectrum disorder, dyslexia, and Parkinson’s disease — comes with many advantages in the workplace.

 

Neurodivergent workers can bring unique perspectives and approaches that lead to new efficiencies and innovations. Neurodiversity can also be a distinct differentiator for businesses wanting to break away from conformity and establish themselves as market leaders.

 

Neurodiversity doesn’t mean limitation and making sure that neurodivergent individuals are represented and accommodated adequately is incredibly important.
