This engaging workshop is designed as an introduction to the topic of neurodiversity and will provide an overview of the diverse neurodivergent processing differences, common misconceptions and stereotypes, and what employers can do to support their neurodivergent employees.

This awareness session will cover:

  • Overview of the different neurodivergent processing differences e.g., Dyslexia, Dyspraxia (DCD), Dyscalculia, ADHD and Autistic Spectrum Disorder.
  • Common misconceptions and stereotypes.
  • Associated challenges and strengths.
  • Potential impact on mental health and general wellbeing.
  • Legislative requirements
  • What employers can do to support their neurodivergent employees and the benefits to both the individual and employer.

The Neurodiversity Awareness workshop will be engaging, interactive and include small group exercises. We will actively work within an open, safe space providing delegates with opportunities to share ‘lived experiences’.
