Neurodiverse Job-Seekers and Employees
Stanford Neurodiversity Project’s NaW program aims to maximize the potential of individuals with ASD by evaluating their cognitive strengths, personalities, and tendencies in a systematic fashion, thus placing individuals in available positions based on their overall strengths and training them in teams that embrace the value of neurodiversity.
The employment disparity among ASD individuals negatively impacts youth and adults within the population on vocational, economical, and social levels. It has also limited their access to opportunities that are vital to the flourishing and well-being of adult life. Hiring and retaining individuals with ASD in the workplace merits serious consideration, not only due to its salience as an issue of social justice and equal access, but due to the additional potential for the immense societal and economic contributions that would be provided by engaging human assets in an employment setting. The NaW program is designed to assist internal and external employers in engaging and hiring individuals within this population. Prospective employees are provided with significant support during and following the job-seeking and hiring processes.
