Neurodiversity Celebration Week

18th – 24th March 2024

What is Neurodiversity Celebration Week?

Neurodiversity Celebration Week, endeavours to challenge the stigmas and misconceptions surrounding neurological differences. Its goal is to change how neurodivergent people are perceived and supported by promoting awareness and appreciation of their unique talents and strengths.

The aim is to reshape the perception of neurodivergent individuals and provide schools, universities, and organizations with the opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the unique talents and advantages of neurodiversity. By doing so, we can create a more inclusive and equitable culture that empowers each person and celebrates differences.

Below are just a few of our wonderful speakers that cover this topic…
