Our world is becoming more digitally connected, not less. Those who are neurodivergent, who have diversity of thought, are showing themselves to be highly capable in the digital world and beyond.
The business case for neurodiversity relates strongly to talent acquisition, and a growing number of companies are launching initiatives to hire neurodiverse talent.

Neurodiversity includes conditions that are developmental, relating to skills such as reading or writing (e.g. dyslexia, dyscalculia), clinical (autism, ADHD, Tourette’s), or acquired (changes in mental health or arising from neurological illness or brain injury).

Up to 15% of people are neurodivergent and this talent is increasingly being recognised in the commercial world, driven by the war for talent and wider diversity and inclusion agendas.
