Neurodivergent Inclusion Specialist
Possibility, not disability.
As many as 1 out of every 5 employees has superpowers. Let me show you how to use them.
I’m Cynthia Coupé, and I help business leaders support their teams and strengthen their businesses by embracing neurodiversity.
Through nearly 20 years of experience as a Speech Language Pathologist focused on supporting individuals with developmental disabilities, I’ve learned that each type of neurodiversity provides its own incredible strengths and perspectives.
Superpowers, if you will.
When managers and business leaders focus on the label—or ignore diversity altogether—they miss out on the full value that their team members can offer.
You know how biodiversity tells us that each difference in each organism is essential, with every element working together to balance and support the ecosystem as a whole?
Neurodiversity (ND) is like that.
It’s the understanding that people’s brains function differently—and the acknowledgment that our modern world was developed for neurotypical (NT) brains, which can make it hard for business leaders to keep their teams happy, healthy, and productive.
When we consider neurodiversity, we often think of autism and ADHD. But neurodiversity can refer to a number of brain differences, including:
Dyslexia or dyscalculia
Sensory processing disorders (SPD)
High sensitivity (HSP)
Neurodivergent team members can be:
Neurodiversity has always been around, but the business community is just beginning to understand it.
If that’s where you are, you’re not alone… and you’re in a great starting place.
Understanding the neurodiversity of your team, and ensuring equity and inclusion within your workplace culture, can have an incredible impact not only for your workers and their health, but for your business, too.
It can be hard to start the conversation.
Since we know that neurodivergent employees have “always been there,” it can be hard to know where to start the process of recognizing and adapting to those differences.
That’s where I come in.
Through team training and executive coaching, I teach best practices for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) from a neurodivergence perspective.
I help you:
Understand your employees and their strengths
Keep your team members feeling fulfilled
Increase understanding and acceptance of different neuro abilities
… all of which enhances performance, reduces attrition, and improves your bottom line.
