Blog Series Introduction
What Does This Have to Do With Therapy?
The tech and science industries in Silicon Valley attract Neurodiversity. I run therapy groups tailored for neurodiverse and autistic working professionals. During these groups, I hear many of the challenges that autistic and neurodiverse professionals face in their careers. In this series of blog posts, I will discuss the strengths that come along with neurodiversity in the workplace, and some of the challenges neurodiverse working professionals have. Additionally, I will offer some tips and insights to help autistic professionals in their socially complex, work environments.
Challenges Neurodiverse Working Professionals may Experience in the Workplace
“Why did my boss praise my technical skills but say I appeared unapproachable, cold, and needed to be friendlier to my team?”
Comments likes this during a job performance review can be frustrating and confusing because as a neurodiverse person, you likely are very passionate about your work and have a strong work ethic. Negative work performance evaluations can be brutally jarring. Sometimes, comments like this can drive people to seek out an autism diagnosis. Or, they can cause a neurodiverse person to want to understand more about themselves and neurodiversity.
