Nook offers teachers & students a home-from-home sanctuary for all types of brains. Let’s face it; it’s going to feel weird going back to school again. Having a little oasis of calm is one way to look after your wellbeing.

I believe that quiet spaces will be a crucial addition to the workplaces of the future. Companies that don't embrace wellbeing will struggle to attract and retain top talent. Talent need spaces to focus, think and relax.

“I love how Nook brightened up our coworking space! It feels like a small island in the midst of an otherwise busy area. We’ve all been thrilled to discover all its features and customers are always curious about the concept, so it’s definitely a great addition” #Coworking 🧡

Wonder. Curiosity. Calm. These are some of the emotions evoked in a sensory Nook. With a starlit back panel, this becomes a safe space for students to learn, rest, or spend time talking with their teachers ✨

With all the discourse and disasters in the world, a lot of emotions can be expected. A lot of Autistics also have Alexithemia. With Alexithemia it can be hard to know what you, or others, are feeling, or to put words to the feelings. An Emotion Wheel can sometimes help.
A follower let us know that when using a screen reader, having hashtagged words in the main post makes it difficult & stressful to understand the message. Sorry guys, we won’t always get it right. But now that we know, we’re going to be better.
Without neurodiversity, we wouldn't be GCHQ. A mix of minds is mission-critical for us!
