KEYNOTE: The Neurodivergent Experience

These slides were developed for an event in Brighton in June 2024.

Here’s the session overview:

The Neurodivergent Experience: Professional Approaches & Personal Reflections

In this engaging and practical keynote, led by an experienced autistic professional, attendees will delve into an actionable framework for creating neurodivergent-friendly environments.

The talk will cover a range of vital topics including:
• Adaptive Communication
• Sensory-Sensitive Environments
• Structured Support for Neurodivergent Individuals
• Managing Stress and Overwhelm

This session promises to offer a toolbox of actionable strategies and insights, empowering staff in all roles to understand and effectively support and collaborate with neurodivergent children and adults.

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.
