Being neurodiverse means having a unique neurological difference. These differences can include conditions such as autism, ADHD, dyslexia, and others. These differences can affect how one communicates, learns, and socializes, but it does not imply that an individual is any less capable than others. Neurodiversity recognizes and respects these differences as a normal part of human diversity. Additionally, neurodiversity affects people of all races, ethnicities, genders, languages, sexual orientations, socio-economic status, and gender identities.
Neurodiversity Works was founded to address the high unemployment rate among neurodiverse individuals and provide them with the resources and opportunities they need to succeed in the workforce. The founders, a neurodiverse family, were driven to start the organization after seeing the challenges their own family and others faced in finding meaningful employment with a livable wage. They were particularly concerned by the fact that 85% of neurodiverse adults remain under or unemployed, despite being capable and willing to work. With their combined experience in nonprofit work and drone industry expertise, they felt compelled to create a new option for workforce development and career training that would benefit the neurodiverse community. They believe that having a fulfilling career provides many benefits for both the individual and society as a whole, and that neurodiverse employees bring unique perspectives and values to employers.
