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.

4.6 out of 5
Very informative, good examples

Very easy to follow course with manageable sections and good use of true/false questions throughout. Good graphics too and good examples to assist learning.

Very intuitive and easy to understand

This user gave this course a rating of 5/5 stars

Good and very informative

Good training to help understand neurodiversity with helpful definitions. Like the rue or false questions throught the training.

Good videos, bad questions

Videos are informative and well made. The multiple choice questions however, are so weak as to make paying attention irrelevant. Please take more care in ensuring those who take your courses actually understand the material.


I really enjoyed learning this course it is very well read out and in a way I understand stood thank u

Excellent and concise

I didn't realise before the diversity of conditions. Excellent in improving my understanding of the different groups, and how to support individuals to reach their potential and add value to the business.

Its good to improve the workplace

my experience has been that people often focus on the challenges of neurological diversity. I wanted to change the narrative and create a balanced view which focuses equally on our talents and strengths.

It was clear, concise and user friendly

I have learned a lot from this. I have worked with many diverse groups of people but have felt quite out of touch with recent and many new opinions, thoughts and feelings. It has helped me feel more confident when working with teens.
