Jira tips for neuro-divergent peeps?

Hi! I'm new to Jira and am wondering if anyone can provide some tips, tricks, or recommendations on add-ons for neuro-divergent (ie ADHD or Autistic) brains?    I've heard great things about Tiimo but I don't think it integrates with Jira.

Here are two posts on the topic I see in the Atlassian Blog
(a bit old so you may have seen them already)

Can the future of tech include Autism Spectrum Disorder? 

“I’ve been fired more than you’ve been hired”: tales of neurodiversity in the workplace 

If you find anything useful on this topic please bring it back here I will follow along!

I think this is the same tips as for everyone: Configure your Jira to be focused and without clutter.

I have worked with several people with different aspects of the autism spectrum, and they have had no problems once things have been set up properly. My experience is that the rituals and processes are more of a hindrance than the tool.
