We are living in a time of increased numbers and awareness about individuals with neuro-sensitives. The fact is that 1 in 8 people are considered neurodiverse but fewer than 50% know it. But these individuals can be high energy, out of the box thinkers, excel in a crisis, and be bold problem solvers. Not only is designing to be inclusive the right thing to do, there is a compelling business case for it as well. And it’s the law. Many corporations, Microsoft, SAP and EY, are recruiting neurodivergents due to the benefits they bring into the workforce. Hence, it’s important we create spaces that are more physically and culturally inclusive for people with a wide spectrum of neurological conditions to allow them to thrive.
