Not Your Typical Accommodation Request: Neurodivergence in the Workplace

Events / May 3, 2023
2:00 – 3:00p.m. ET


Although coined in the late 1990s, the term “neurodivergent” has only recently risen to mainstream recognition, with some studies now claiming that up to one in five employees identify as neurodivergent. Your workforce is likely composed of a neurodiverse population, which incorporates the full range of variations in brain function, cognition, learning, behavior and socialization that exists within any population. Depending on their condition, neurodivergent employees may be entitled to accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and similar state and local laws.

Please join us for a webinar on May 3 to learn more about neurodivergence in the workplace. We will cover neurodivergent considerations and further explore how this emerging topic can manifest in the workplace, and whether this also means adopting policies and practices to accommodate this newly recognized group of employees. The discussion will also include best practices for handling related requests.
