Teamx can have a positive impact on neuroinclusion and disability inclusion where traditional approaches may fall short. Teamx’s approach is to help teams identify and adopt shared practices that remove barriers to full participation for every team member, including neurodivergent team members and team members with a disability.

This is different from traditional approaches which focus on one off workplace accommodations for specific colleagues and don’t change an organization’s or team’s default practices and norms. Such traditional approaches have a limited impact because:

  • Some team members with a disability may not feel safe/comfortable requesting an accommodation
  • Accommodations don’t remove the underlying barriers preventing a team member from accessing the resources, information and interactions they need to do their work
