Neurodiversity affects around one in seven people. It refers to alternative ways of thinking, behaving and processing information. It includes conditions such as dyslexia, autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and dyspraxia and is sometimes seen as a challenge. But it can offer opportunities for different thinking and fresh ideas.

How does this affect your business?

Traditional working practices are designed for ‘neurotypical’ people who aren’t neurodivergent. This can make it difficult for neurodiverse employees to thrive at work, and for the business to make the most of their talents.

Below are some key resources to help understand neurodiversity and how best to support neurodivergent employees:

For your business

Guidance and support for line-managers

Resources that you can share with your team

The Neurodiversity Celebration Week website has a wealth of information and resources if you would like to understand more about neurodiversity. You can also access information and support from charities such as National Autistic Society and British Dyslexia Association.
