About the event

Thank you for your interest in this event. This event has now taken place, and though registrations are closed, if you would like to watch the recording then you can access it here (along with the other NCW 2024 event recordings!). We hope you enjoy.

This webinar will provide an introduction to neurodiversity and specific neurodifferences for those new to the topic.  It will raise awareness about the value neurodiversity can bring to society and equip you to better understand and support neurodivergent family members, friends and colleagues.  It will also provide a good foundation of knowledge to help you get the most out of the panel events taking place throughout Neurodiversity Celebration Week.  

We aim to leave some time at the end of the webinar for questions from the audience.  Content will include:

  • An introduction to Neurodiversity Celebration Week and how you can get involved.

  • What we mean by neurodiversity.

  • What we mean by neuro-inclusion, why it is important and the benefits it can bring to individuals, organisations and society.

  • An explanation of the most common neurodifferences, including the strengths and challenges often associated with them.

  • Practical advice on how you can support and empower neurodivergent children and adults.

Audience: Open to all. Please note the content is suitable for adults and children who are 12+”

This is a free online event via Zoom.
