Join us for an interactive workshop to aid awareness of neurodiversity in the education sector and wider workplaces. The evening will focus on adaptive practice to support inclusivity, with shared resources to take away from the session to use and embed in your own workplace. The event has been organised by our Initial Teacher Training course leader, highlighting themes such as the 'Double Empathy Problem' and the 'Neurodiversity Paradigm'.
