Professionals need to learn specifically how to work with neurodivergence

Folks, I’ve got something important to discuss: the pressing need for professionals (e.g. corporate, small business, coaches, medical, mental health, etc.) working with the neurodivergent community to truly understand the inner workings of the neurodivergent mind. Why is this such a crucial matter, you ask? Well, let me break it down for you, backed by some solid sources.
Let’s start with the numbers right here in the United States. Current estimates reveal that, approximately 15-20% of the US population is neurodivergent. That’s a staggering range! It means that between 49.65 million and 66.2 million clients in the US alone have brains that work, learn, and process information differently. These numbers are not to be taken lightly, my friend.
But this isn’t just an American issue; it’s a global phenomenon. Around 15-20% of the world’s population exhibits some form of neurodivergence. That’s a substantial portion of humanity, my friends.
Let’s delve into the most prevalent types of neurodiversity. Among adults, dyslexia takes the crown as the most common, affecting approximately 10% of adults. And let’s not forget about our buddy ADHD, impacting around 4-5% of the population. These conditions are significant, and they demand our attention and understanding.
Fortunately, companies and workplaces are starting to catch on to the power of neurodiversity. They’re recognizing the unique skills and perspectives that neurodivergent clients bring to the table.
However, in order to fully harness this power, professionals must become well-versed in the intricacies of the neurodivergent mind. For reasons including the fact you may have neurodivergent clients who don’t know they’re neurodivergent. But they still need to have their needs met, and you could be one of the first in their lives who actually – GET IT!
We’re talking about building trust, fostering collaboration, and empowering these clients to make progress. It all begins with a deep understanding of how their minds function. It means recognizing and accommodating their differences rather than brushing them aside.
It’s time to invest in training and education that will equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to support neurodivergent clients effectively. By doing so, you can create working relationships that are not only low in frustration but also celebrate strengths, adapt communication strategies, and design interventions that truly make a difference.
The bottom line, the urgent need for professionals working with the neurodivergent community to grasp the complexities of the neurodivergent mind cannot be overstated. The statistics show that a significant portion of the population falls under the neurodivergent umbrella. 

By embracing this understanding and empowering ourselves with knowledge and actionable strategies, we can foster trust, collaboration, and empowerment among neurodivergent clients. Together, let’s pave the way for a more inclusive and successful future.
