Our Neurodiversity Consultancy Service
At Exceptional Individuals, we know that even with the best will in the world, it can be difficult to be a truly inclusive employer. That is why we support organisations through our neurodiversity consultancy services, offering advice and guidance on drafting and implementing inclusive policies, HR guides, and creating a culture of open communication.
We can get you started by supporting you to become more "neurodiversity friendly", and then provide more bespoke consultancy services such as neurodiversity audits and training. Our specialist services help to ensure that being inclusive is not treated as a one-time engagement, but a progressive attempt at genuinely improving the inclusivity of your workplace.
What is a neurodiversity consultant?A neurodiversity consultant is an individual who specialises in supporting businesses in creating a more neuro-inclusive environment for employees who are neurodiverse. This may include carrying out neurodiversity audits to measure neuro-inclusion within the organisation and then developing initiatives from this data to improve the inclusiveness of the workplace. Neurodiversity consultants can help businesses create a more supportive environment for all employees while also tapping into the unique perspectives and skillsets of those who are neurodivergent.
