This toolkit has been produced by neurodivergent members of GMB staff in consultation with neurodivergent GMB members.

The aim of this document is to provide information and advice that can be used to help make workplaces more inclusive for neurodivergent workers.

For reasons of length, it does not contain a detailed introduction to individual neurodivergent conditions. Separate guidance notes are being produced (although the difficulties of generalising about neurodiversity should be stressed at all points).
