Neurodiversity in the Workplace

Price: $525.00


Just as every workforce is varied in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, race, religion, status, equally important is acknowledging the variation in how each individual thinks, feels, senses, and experiences the world around them. Some of the most impressive inventions and innovations have occurred because of this variation in how individuals think.

Within any neurodiverse workforce you will have a blend of individuals who are neurotypical and neurodivergent. The complicating factor is your own mind may be going to a place of questioning: how do I know the difference?

Tara Langan, Course Author

This course gives you an opportunity to hear directly from neurodivergent individuals, gaining valuable insights and perspectives across four user-friendly modules.
