Neurodiversity & Employment Innovation

The Center for Neurodiversity & Employment Innovation or CNDEI is doing the heavy lifting to make sure that there are exponentially more employers who understand and value neurodivergent talent. We are also making sure that colleges are providing customized career services to help with job preparation and connection for these students.
