About the Event

This session considers optimistically what drives and prevents the inclusion of neurodivergent staff within one faculty at the University of Chester. It is based on the stories told (with respect to confidentiality), the support offered and the progress made. We outline the positive approaches used to encourage members to discuss the difficulties they face and the sharing of ideas through to solution-focused outcomes. Delivered by Vala Ebrahimi and Peg Murphy, both Senior Lecturers in Health and Social Care.

Who is it for: The content of the presentation is for anyone who wants to understand what neurodiversity is in the workplace and what neurodivergent people can offer.

What you will gain from attending: It will be as useful for the individual who is neurodivergent or suspects they might be, to those who want to be supportive from a collegiate perspective with an interest in this initiative.

(The session will cover much more on this topic, but if you are unsure about what the term means, this may help - It is estimated that around 1 in 7 people (more than 15% of people in the UK) are neurodivergent, meaning that the brain functions, learns and processes information differently. Neurodivergence includes Attention Deficit Disorders, Autism, Dyslexia and Dyspraxia).
