Neurodiversity and its Scope
“Neurodiversity refers to the range of differences in individual brain function and behavioural traits, regarded as part of normal variation in the human population. Through this strengths-based framework, autistic, ADHD, dyslexic, and otherwise neuro-distinct people have unique strengths and support needs in the context of employment. By understanding these strengths and support needs, Roundtable members have gained a competitive advantage through neuro-inclusive design.“
