Around 15-20 per cent of the population have a neurological difference and every neurodivergent individual has a unique pattern of strengths and abilities. When it comes to neurodiversity the approach is often centred on diagnosis or labels, which means that the focus is on the challenges rather than the many strengths and talents of neurodiverse individuals.
The aim of this week is to educate, provide guidance, and challenge stigmas to celebrate the strengths and talents of neurodivergent individuals and the positives of a diverse team.
Today (16 March), Telent hosted a Live Talk with guest speaker, Dr. Sally Finnie. Sally is a Doctor of Clinical Neuropsychology who has worked with neurodiverse adults for the last 10 years.
Across the week, we have also been hearing personal stories from our colleagues around the business.
