Best Practices to Support Neurodiversity in the Workplace

Hiring neurodiverse talent can be very advantageous for employers. Yet, neurodiverse individuals, particularly those with autism, experience higher levels of unemployment and underemployment than both people without disabilities and people with other types of disabilities. This webinar will discuss effective practices and predictors of positive post-school outcomes for transition-aged youth with autism, strategies to improve hiring experiences and outcomes for autistic job applicants, and recommendations to promote disability inclusion within the workplace.

Overview

Many neurodivergent individuals experience barriers in traditional job interviews, hiring processes, and workplace settings. Join us for this webinar as we explore findings from Cornell University’s Autism Transition to Adulthood Initiative (ATTAIN), as well as from a National Science Foundation research project on ways employers can modify the job interview process to lead to better hiring outcomes. This webinar will also delve into promising practices emerging from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Project LIFE on how to support neurodiverse individuals in the workplace, as well as practical guidance from a leading disability-inclusiveness business consultancy on what you can do to make your workplace inclusive for all.
