78% of autistic people in the UK and 55% in the Netherlands are unemployed, yet can be 140% more productive than neurotypical employees..
This is what Ludmila Praslova calls the autistic unemployment paradox.
What does neurodiversity mean today, how does it relate to the autistic community and cognitive diversity and why is it important to consider in the workplace and in hiring?
Ludmila Praslova, Ph.D and Charlotte explore the definitions of neurodiversity and neurodivergent, the reality of neurodivergent and autistic people on the labour market and at work, the benefits to neurodiverse teams in organisations and inclusive practices when hiring neurodivergent candidates.
This is just the start of a much larger conversation about neurodiversity inclusion in hiring and Ludmila Praslova has published many articles on the topic.
