Neurodiversity hiring: Together we can make a difference
CAI partners with neurodiversity-support organizations, top colleges/universities with neurodiversity programs, government entities, and the medical community to identify neurodivergent individuals who are eager to enter a work environment that values their contributions and supports their needs.
Multiple sources estimate that over 1 billion individuals identify as being neurodivergent.1 Many of these individuals have higher-than-average abilities with skills in pattern recognition and problem-solving, and sharp attention to detail. Yet unemployment for neurodivergent adults runs at least as high as 30 – 40%. The traditional job interview can be an obstacle. And the challenge continues if the workplace culture is not ready to embrace neurodivergent employees.
