Thinking differently about neurodiversity
Play • 24 min

Whether or not you’re up to date with the language around neurodiversity, ADHD, autism, dyslexia and other terminology, most workplaces include people who think differently, and who might be part of a neurominority.


To help us demystify neurodiversity and get proactive, we’re joined by Dr Nancy Doyle, CEO and founder of Genius Within, Adrian Ward, Head of Disability Partnerships at the Business Disability Forum and Erin Fulton-McAlister, Acas workplace adviser. We look at: 


  • What neurodiversity is 
  • Why we need to pay attention to it 
  • Creating a workplace that celebrates and capitalises on neurodiversity
