As an administrative professional, you have an important role to play in supporting neurodiversity in the workplace.

Neurodiversity refers to the differences in individual brain function and behavior. Differences may include dyslexia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Contrary to popular opinion, differences do not point to anything inherently negative. Fostering neurodiversity in the workplace has many benefits, such as offering diverse perspectives for innovation. 

A neurodiverse workforce can also improve creativity and problem-solving skills within an organization. Researchers have found that organizations that embrace neurodiversity increase productivity, innovation, and revenue.
