In a business news briefs column: A neurodiversity space called “The Cog” is opening its doors officially on Feb.5 at Cal State University San Bernardino. The space will be available to anyone with or without autism, ADHD, anxiety, dyslexia and other ways of experiencing the world differently.

Dr. Jess Block Nerren at the center said that “community members can and should engage with the space.”

The center will host programming by the community and for the community, including but not limited to current CSUSB students, staff and faculty, she said.

“We are heavily CSUSB focused, but we also are starting projects in collaboration with agency partners that extend far beyond CSUSB.”

Nerren is the Faculty Inclusion Fellow for Disability, Difference and Accommodation and one of the co-creators of the new neurodiversity space.
