Neurodiversity is a term which was first coined in the late 1990s to describe conditions such as Dyslexia, Autism and ADHD as not deficits or disorders but rather more like variations or differences of the human brain. For both children and their parents the concept of neurodiversity can have benefits as this can frame their challenges as being differences, rather than as deficits.

The course will cover the following issues:

  • Demystifying Neurodiversity
  • Traits and not Labels
  • Introducing Neuroflexibility
  • Neuroflexibilty in terms of Learning
  • Neuroflexibilty in terms of Behaviour
  • Neuroflexibilty in terms of Socialisation
