Course Description

Neurodiversity refers to the diversity in how people think, learn, and behave – it’s the idea that people interact with their environment in many ways. Neurodiversity is also inclusive of individuals with learning differences, autism spectrum disorders, or other neurological or developmental conditions such as ADHD.

Research estimates that around 1 percent of the population has an autism spectrum disorder, between 5-9 percent are estimated to have a learning disability and just under 10 percent have a diagnosis of ADHD. The ability to recruit and retain neurodivergent employees will make your agency more diverse — and effective.

In this two-hour virtual training event, FELTG Instructor Shana Palmieri, LCSW will provide an overview of diagnoses that fall under the term “neurodivergence” and share guidance on how to best create an inclusive workplace.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Recognize the strengths and challenges individuals may bring to the workplace.
  • Use a strength-based management approach to create a supportive workplace.
  • Identify workplace accommodations for qualified individuals.
