When It Comes to Neurodiversity, Awareness Isn't Enough

Reading now: 300

Neurodiversity has been around since the existence of humankind. According to Natalia Lyckowski, Global Neurodiversity@IBM Business Resource Group Co-Chair at IBM, “Even in the earliest communities, the NDers (those who are neurodivergent) in many cases may have been the Holy People – or the Medicine Workers of the community.

People who had the capacity to remember which exact leaf could cure or kill, that could hear predators or prey coming before others, those that had big ideas.

Somewhere along our human timeline, many such individuals became outcasts…and that’s a bit where we are still stuck today.” Currently, it is estimated that approximately 30-40 percent of the population is neurodivergent, meaning their brains are not neurotypical.
