It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.
Salvesen Mindroom Centre is delighted to launch two new training courses on neurodiversity.
Neurodiversity refers to the natural variations in the human brain and encourages us to consider the strengths of people who think, feel, and experience the world differently. In this course, you will explore how neuroinclusive practice can help reduce stigma and promote acceptance of this often-overlooked form of human diversity.
The training will be delivered by Aileen Shrimpton, a qualified and highly experienced trainer with lived-experience of neurodivergence.
At the end of the course, you will gain an improved understanding of:
What neurodiversity means
Disability, difference, and neurodiversity
The strengths that come from thinking differently
Why neuroinclusive practice matters and where to start
Who should attend?
This course is suitable for those seeking an introduction to the concept of neurodiversity and no previous knowledge is required.
This training session will take place from 15:00 - 16:30 on Tuesday 14 September 2021. Book a place here.
