Workplace neurodiversity training from The Brain Charity

What is neurodiversity?

Each person has a brain that is unique to them; no two brains are quite the same. Neurodiversity is the concept that brain differences are natural variations. Some people’s brains simply work in a different way.

For at least 20% of the adult population in the UK, these differences mean they may be diagnosed with neurological conditions such as autism, dyslexia and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and may consider themselves to be neurodivergent.

The neurodiversity movement celebrates the full spectrum of brain differences, encompassing both neurotypicality and neurodivergence, and champions the strength of neurodivergent people.

Why is neurodiversity in the workplace important?

Diversity is key to the development and progression of any organisation. Hiring a neurodiverse workforce comes with huge benefits, and allows companies to access a wider talent pool.

By identifying ideal roles for neurodivergent staff and limiting potential barriers, organisations can create a neurodiverse workplace which is productive and effective for all.

  • Reliability, conscientiousness and persistence
  • High levels of concentration and the ability to hyperfocus
  • Detailed and in-depth factual knowledge and an excellent memory
