1 in 5 people think, learn, and communicate differently than the so-called “typical” brain. Yet, current efforts toward enhancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in many organizations do not include neurodiversity and disability. What does it mean for healthcare providers to be neuro-inclusive?  We will discuss barriers to healthcare access for neurodivergent patients, as well as specific, actionable steps to improve the accessibility and neuro-inclusiveness of healthcare.
