What do professionals mean when they mention  Neurodiversity?

Neurodiversity is a term used by mental health professionals which refers to how some people's brains work in different ways.

"20% of the adult population in the UK are neurodiverse (according to TheBrainCharity.org.uk) and this is a growing population as more people are getting diagnosed as neurodiverse."

These differences in how some people's brains work may mean they are diagnosed with neurological conditions such as autism, dyslexia and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

Free Childhood Neurodiversity Workshops to support parent and carers:

NSFT Psycology in Schools Team deliver a range of free childhood Neurodiversity virtual workshops for parents and carers to help them with advice and guidance on how to support neurodiverse children and young people. To book on to a workshop go to the Wellbeing Education Website family page
