The importance of neurodiversity

Neurodiversity : the neurological counterpart to biodiversity

Scientific literature is increasingly pointing out that each brain is unique. Unfortunately, our learning and work environments still cater to a fictitious "average" neurotypical person. 

What is adequate for some is not necessarily so for others, creating inequalities in access to education and employment. This is the case for many neurodivergent people, who make up 20% of today's population.

 Some people have access to support services, while others are able to thrive with the help of a caring and supportive environment.

Unfortunately, mostly due to intersectional factors, identification and support for a neurological difference isn't always easily accessible.  This is mainly due to a lack of adequate training, incomplete identification tools and a difficulty in accessing services. As a consequence, many neurodivergent individuals face important barriers to educational success and job satisfaction.


The three "M"s: Missed, Misidentified or Misunderstood 

  • Some are missed because their neurodivergence is invisible or too subtle.
  • Others are misidentified (or misdiagnosed), causing various degrees of additional visible or invisible distress.  
  • Many are also misunderstood by their peers, even after a neurodivergence has been identified. This is generally due to the a lack of understanding or the double empathy problem. 


The 7 values that underpin our approach take these 3 "M"s into account.



It’s important to consider all factors that play a role in neuroinclusion. Intersectionality as a value ensures that our approach takes multiple realities into account. This, in turn, helps us to help you find unique solutions based on your organisation.
