Neuro-Inclusive Candidate Network
What is the Neuro-Inclusive Candidate Network (NCN)?
The NCN connects ND students and recent alumni with employers who understand and value their differences. The NCN is an initiative of the University Council for Neurodiversity Employment – a coalition of over 60 schools led by UConn.
What does “neurodiversity” mean, actually?
Neurodiversity commonly refers to (but is not limited to) autism, ADHD, dyspraxia, dyslexia, dysgraphia, OCD, dyscalculia, and Tourette’s. Neurodivergent (ND) minds perceive, communicate, and behave differently than so-called “neurotypical” brains.
How is my neurodiversity related to employment?
Neurodivergent people bring unique ways of thinking to the world. Companies actively seek those different perspectives in employees, and are focused on creating more neurodiverse workplaces that are supportive of your differences!
