Podcast: Neurodiversity

Dee Caunt, chief executive at the Dyslexia Association, shares her thoughts on how organisations can support neurodiverse employees and benefit from their unique strengths.

We discuss:

  • the concept of neurodiversity;
  • the benefits of employing neurodiverse people;
  • the challenges that neurodiverse employees may face at work;
  • making reasonable adjustments to the recruitment process;
  • handling performance issues; and
  • getting communication right.

For confidential advice on supporting a dyslexic employee, HR practitioners can call the Dyslexia Association's helpline.
