“Supporting Neurodiversity at Work” – MindTools


“Do “great minds think alike”? No, not really. Neuroscience has found that every mind is different – to the point that a scan of someone’s brain is as recognizable as a fingerprint.

Ed Thompson, founder and CEO of Uptimize, is dedicated to increasing awareness and support for employees who think differently, including individuals with autismADHD and dyslexia. Humanity can be described as “neurodiverse,” while these individuals are “neurodivergent,” thinking differently from most.”
