Neurodiversity in the workplace

By Heather | Jul 27, 2022

Author, Floreo advisor and our Lead Self Advocate Sam Farmer wrote a compelling piece for Autism Spectrum News detailing his strategy and vision for workplace neurodiversity. Many autistic adults are un- or under-employed and it is imperative that we all work to change that sad fact. 

At Floreo, we are hard at work with the next phase of immersive experiences as part of our partnership with the State of Tennessee Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. This next series addresses employment-related skills including time management, multi-tasking, collaboration, and teamwork. This set of lessons will be released later in 2022: stay tuned for that announcement!
