INSET: Neurodivergent Students

These slides were developed for a whole staff INSET in Kent in September 2023.

Here’s the session overview:

Enabling Neurodivergent Students to Thrive

Step into the shoes of neurodivergent pupils and understand the school experience from their point of view. We’ll explore the day-to-day challenges of life in school and consider simple adaptations to our daily practice, culture and environments that enable neurodivergent students to succeed. We’ll also explore the strengths of our neurodivergent learners and learn how to utilise these to enable them to fly even higher, both at school and beyond whilst minimising risk to their wellbeing.

If you were there, I hope these are a helpful aide-memoire. If not, I hope they make enough sense without me to be useful. If you’d like to download them, you can do so via this page on slideshare.
