What will it cover?
Neurodiversity is an essential form of human diversity and broad term describing the idea that people experience and interact with the world around them in many different ways. Our training recognises neurodiversity not as deficits, but as differences. This training aims to provide attendees with an overview of neurodiversity-related conditions such as, Autism, ADHD and others and how to practically support individuals.
The training aims to:
- To increase and develop your awareness of what we mean by the words ‘autism’, ‘ADHD’ ‘neurodiversity’ and the ‘spectrum’
- To support you in understanding and identifying variations of the different traits, characteristics and behaviours displayed by individuals with autism and ADHD
- To describe some of the common difficulties faced by autistic people in childhood and later life, such as the comorbidity of mental health conditions
- To challenge common stereotypes and false misconceptions about autistic people
- To learn a number of practical ways you can support an individual with autism to fulfil their potential, by understanding, adjusting and communicating more effectively
