Neurodiversity with Dr. Sallyann Freudenberg

An Agile coach, trainer and mentor with a PhD in Psychology of Collaborative Software Development, Sallyann Freudenberg is an advocate for neurodiversity. It was after her son was diagnosed with autism that Sallyann recognized the same characteristics in herself – and in the tech industry around us. She says, “Statistically, you have autistics in your organization if you’re a tech company. There’s a huge correlation… These people are in your company right now, you’re just not making the most out of them.” To help companies recognize that neuro-atypical individuals with autism or ADHD may offer intrinsic “superpowers” to offset their challenges, Sally co-founded the Inclusive Collaboration Campaign with Katherine Kirk.
