Neurodiversity is a relatively new aspect of overall workplace diversity. It refers to the diversity of human brains, and considers differences of how our brains are "wired" as simply another natural variation in humans.
Neurodiversity can make a particularly important contribution to overall diversity of thought. Neurodivergent brains are wired differently and hence by definition think differently. From an organisational point of view, these differences in cognitive functioning can provide easy access to often sought-after skills: people with ‘a different mindset’, who ‘look at things in a different way’, who ‘challenge established ways of thinking’.
The National Organization on Disability (NOD) is a private, non-profit organization that promotes the full participation and contributions of America’s 57 million people with disabilities in all aspects of life.
