Excellent article about the real strengths of neurodiversity, in particular Autism in this article. It talks about how business is catching on to the possibilities of people who think differently. I love the quote, that “if you’ve got a team of people on a project and they are all neurotypical, and the project encounters a problem, the chances are that those 20 people will all come up with the same kind of answer. Bring in someone with a totally different cognitive process and a completely different perspective and they’ll come up with something different. And that’s invaluable.” I have been saying for years “we need people who think and act differently, to solve the major challenges we face today.” You can see these skills even in young children and it is our job to help them succeed in their missions.
Do read the full article; thank you John Harris
