Prejudice and Misunderstanding Plague Neurodiverse People’s
Employment Chances

Between 80-85%  neurodivergent people are unemployed or underemployed in the United States per the CDC.

[W]orkplaces must design inclusively, and account for the fact that many of their employees are neurodivergent. Whether they know it or not. As many as 1 in 5 people are neurodivergent. Yet, 76% don’t feel comfortable disclosing their neurodiversity at work…. According to research from The Institute of Leadership & Management, half of leaders and managers would not employ a neurodivergent person. From negative stigma, to non-inclusive recruitment processes, there’s many barriers preventing this transition into work. (Abby Corrigan, texthelp.com)
