It is no secret that every brain is different, but when such differences require a tailored approach, neurodiversity speakers are on hand to educate and empower.
It is estimated that more than 15% of the British public are neurodivergent, reflecting the importance of understanding diverse learning differences. Many workplaces only cater to neurotypical employees, forcing one in seven to adapt their learning style. This can impact peoples’ emotional wellbeing and workplace performance.
Used to describe conditions like ADHD, autism and Asperger’s syndrome, business leaders need to accommodate neurodiverse employees through supportive policies. Neural inclusivity is essential in the workplace.
One of the best ways to celebrate your employees’ differences, is to observe Neurodiversity Celebration Week between the 15th and 21st of March. The event recognises the many strengths of neurodiverse people, like their problem-solving skills and ability to think outside of the box.
When booked for events, these inspiring speakers leave audiences with a new perspective on neurodiversity. As many special educational needs (SEN) professionals experience stigma from their neurotypical colleagues, this topic is incredibly important at corporate occasions.
