Making adjustments for neurodiversity without understanding can lead to making dangerous assumptions and generalisations. We cannot step into the shoes of every individual within our organisation without that key understanding. Additionally, those of us with decision-making responsibility are often put into the position of making those decisions on behalf of a team or a person.

How can we ensure that we understand those we might consider to be different to ourselves without causing offence, making assumptions and casting generalisations?
