Neurodiversity in the workplace

It’s estimated that 1 in 7 people have a neurological difference. Ensuring your workplace supports neurodiversity is key to a more innovative, productive and valuable workforce.


Benefits of a neuro-inclusive workplace


A neurodiverse workforce allows for diversity of thought within your organization. Neurodivergent individuals bring unique perspectives and skillsets to the team that ultimately drive an innovative culture.

It’s important for every workplace to be neurologically inclusive and create an environment where everyone is able to work to the best of their ability, regardless of neurological differences.

Ayoa’s an absolute godsend for my visually needy disorganized autistic/adhd brain. There are so many features designed with neurodivergent clients in mind and the free version is excellent. As well as 3 types of mindmap there's also non-linear task planning! I wish I'd found it sooner.
