Neurodiversity is one of the hottest topics of 2024, with employers increasingly recognising that embracing differences is not only the right thing to do, it also benefits the whole organisation.

The neurodivergent parent experience

But one issue employers are beginning to explore is how parenting neurodivergent children can significantly impact their employees.

More and more parents are being diagnosed around the same time as their children. This can add another layer of complexity and juggling of needs – which can lead to burnout, absenteeism, and reduced productivity.
