About this Event

Neurodiversity is still a relatively recent concept covering a range of neurological conditions including Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and Developmental Language Disorder.

The course provides delegates with an awareness of what neurodiverse diagnoses or profiles consist of, what they mean and how an inclusive approach can be taken to enable and empower neurodiverse leaders, colleagues, students and visitors.

The course will take place across two sessions, and your booking will give you access to both. In the first session, we will cover:

  • What neurodiversity means and what neurodiversity is not
  • An understanding of the challenges and talents associated with individual neurodiverse conditions
  • What neurodiverse inclusion looks like

In the second session, we will cover:

  • How a confident approach can enable and empower neurodiverse colleagues and students
  • How to create neurodiverse inclusive meetings
  • Supporting well-being for everyone: with a focus on the impact on neurodiversity
  • Access to work support

Who is it for?

This webinar is relevant to all colleagues, particularly those with current or future management or leadership responsibilities.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this session, participants will have:

1. An understanding of what neurodiversity means (and what it isn’t) alongside confidence in neurodiverse inclusion

2. An understanding of the difference and similarities with different neurodiverse profiles

3. Greater confidence in inclusive practice with neurodiverse colleagues, students and visitors
