NEURODIVERSITY AT WORK

NEURODIVERSITY AT WORK
by
THEO SMITH AND AMANDA KIRBY

It is hard to believe that it is a year since the publication of 'Neurodiversity at Work' by Theo Smith and Amanda Kirby. The first of its type to be published, the book presents a comprehensive overview of the issues at play in encouraging neurodiverse talent in the workplace, and calls for changes in the way that businesses recruit. It brings together examples of best practice and has quickly become an indispensable volume for anyone who looks to attract outstanding talent in their organisations. 

 

NEA Chief Exec Rob Edwards was pleased to contribute to the book and point to the gap in data about neurodiverse business owners. As he said to the authors, 'without an interconnected research base, shared knowledge and the pulling together of what information is available, it is a challenge to tackle the barriers that we do know about, like access to finance, education and training, implications for welfare benefit support, a lack of role models and mentors, and a robust and supportive business infrastructure'. 

 

'Neurodiversity at Work' is available to buy via all major booksellers, including Amazon
