Embracing and understanding neurodiversity in assessment

Episode 2 Hosts: Ali Shalfrooshan and Mary Mescal

What is neurodiversity? The term itself is fairly young – having only been coined about 30 years ago. In the world of work, do you know how neurodiverse individuals can not only contribute to your organization but provide unique benefits? Join R&D colleagues Ali Shalfrooshan and Mary Mescal as they explore the world of tests, processes, and recruitment, and their impact on the neurodiverse community. They explain the need for an inclusive approach from the very beginning when an assessment is first being developed and the importance of communication throughout the entire recruitment process.

Learn about some of the barriers that can inhibit neurodiverse individuals from reaching their full potential in the workforce, what the phrase ‘spikey profile’ means, and what research has shown when it comes to reasonable adjustments for Situational Judgment Tests (SJTs). By incorporating neurodiversity into your organization’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives, you may be tapping into an underutilized category of candidates and employees who can contribute immensely from day one on the job.
