Overview:   What is Neuro Diversity ?

neuro diversity training

Neuro Diversity is, expressed in simplistic terms two things:

1: Recognising and understanding some of the common differences in brain functioning that exist amongst people.

2: Embracing these differences by focusing on the strengths Neuro Diverse people bring to the world or workplace rather than focusing on limitations.

neuro diversity training 2As a professional diversity consultancy, we have worked in the areas of disability and neurodiversity since 1996 and have subsequently developed practical, engaging and enabling training materials, exercises and information to impart the necessary knowledge, skills and confidence to recognise, understand, and embrace neurodivergence in the workplace.

The overall aims of this event is to firstly impart the necessary knowledge required to understand the common aspects of Neuro Diversity but more importantly, the skills and confidence to think laterally about how the workplace, policies and activities can be adjusted slightly to allow Neuro Diversity to flourish in your organisation and not dwindle.

This is a particularly relevant consideration in recruitment by focusing on what a person can rather than cannot do.
