What Does Neurodiversity MEAN?

It’s the idea that variation in brain function exists across the population, and differences such as autism, ADHD, and other conditions are not a disability, but rather just a different way of thinking and behaving. With this in mind, organizations need to put processes in place to recognize and manage to employee strengths and make adjustments if needed – as a result, new skill sets are recognized, staffing issues are solved, and significant gains are made for key business metrics such as profitability, innovation, employee retention and growth.

Become A Certified Neurodiverse Workplace

Statistically, your organization’s workforce is already neurodiverse, but staff are likely not managing, coaching and retaining those employees effectively. In addition, hiring practices, placement, onboarding, and management of new employees can be improved to be inclusive of neurodiverse individuals who can become assets to your organization.

IBCCES’ CNW program provides staff training and support as well as a review process to ensure your organization is pivoting to meet your current and prospective employees’ needs, and ultimately, maintain success as an organization as whole.
