What is neurodiversity?

Simply put, our brains are all wired differently! 

Neurodiversity is another category of diversity. We typically think of diversity as a difference we can see, such as race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. Neurodiversity, however, is not a visible difference. It is a difference in thinking style.  

Neurodiverse conditions include dyslexia, ADHD, Tourette's, individuals on the autism spectrum, and those with Asperger Syndrome. 15%-20% of the population is estimated to be neurodivergent and 1 in 45 people is estimated to be autistic.

Can understanding neurodiversity help my company in a tight labor market?

Yes! The neurodiverse is a qualified, untapped talent pool. In fact, 50,000 autistic adults enter the US job market annually. These skilled, educated job candidates are available to work and want to work. Companies who have hired autistic employees report increases in innovation, productivity, profits and better branding. It's also the human thing to do. Simple adjustments to recruitment practices, management styles and the work environment can help neurodivergent employees perform their best. These adjustments benefit other employees, too.

Proud Founder

Data science. AI. Robotics. Engineering. Cybersecurity. Healthcare. Insurance. Job areas experiencing tremendous growth. They require the strengths common of neurodivergent employees including: strong analytic and problem solving skills, data-driven thinking styles, great attention to detail, visual thinkers, ability to recognize patterns, and good spatial knowledge. Yet this talent pool of qualified candidates is 85% unemployed. Why aren't they filling these jobs? There's a disconnect, and it's put me on my current path.
