Neurodiversity Awareness
Section 1: Introducing Neurodiversity

In the opening section of this course, we look at the definition of neurodiversity, what this means to an individual, and the different types of neurodivergence.

We also explore some of the misconceptions around neurodiversity, and the stigma and lack of support for neurodistinct people.

Section 2: Neurodivergent Minds

This section has a focus on a few of the most common neurodivergent identities that exist within our communities, including the three neurodivergent groups - clinical, applied and acquired.

Section 3: Neurodiversity at Work

Section 3 covers Neurodiversity at Work and how understanding and being aware of neurodivergence can help help individuals to thrive and remove obstacles or challenges. This includes a focus on the 'social model' and 'strengths-based model' that help us to understand how to better support employees and enable them to succeed.

We look into the legal protections that exist for neurodivergent people and the social and financial support available. 

Section 4: Getting a Diagnosis

The final section of the course covers the processes in getting a diagnosis when individuals show signs of neurodiversity. This includes the research, speaking with medical professionals and evaluations.

We look further into what it can mean to have a diagnosis, and the impact this can have on individuals both at work and in their home life.

About this course

Neurodiversity celebrates the gift of uniqueness and independent thought. Along with it comes new ideas, out-of-the-box thinking, and many ways of approaching challenges and solving problems. ​​​N​eurodivergent colleagues bring highly valuable qualities to the team - but many workplaces fail to support their needs which means neither party is able to flourish as much as they could. 

This course offers crucial information for everyone on what neurodiversity is and the benefits it brings to work. It also explores the varied nature of neurodivergent minds, how to best support neurodivergent colleagues, and how to create an inclusive work environment. 

In developing the course, we worked alongside Waymakers for their advice, input, and consultancy - they work to improve opportunities and outcomes for autistic people aged 14+, their employers, and others working with them.
