Call For Papers

Workplace diversity and inclusion initiatives have improved inclusion for many diverse subgroups. The term neurodiversity refers to individuals possessing a great range of cognitive differences, including Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum disorder (ASD), dysgraphia, dyslexia, Tourette’s, and other learning differences.

The importance of neurodiversity issues in the workplace has outpaced the research in this area. Organizations are attempting to provide more inclusive environments and inclusion hiring practices for neurodiverse individuals that is new to most organizational Human Resources personnel. Moreover, the organizational implications for practices related to neurodiverse employees is continuously evolving. A major cause of this continuous evolution is that there are ambiguous and/ or contradictory legal rulings regarding the appropriate accommodations for the neurodiverse employee in federal and state cases.
