The EPSRC and SFI CDT in Sustainable Chemistry and School of Psychology would like to invite University staff, students and alumni to join us at this event, taking place as a part of the diversity festival.

Neurodiversity refers to the infinite variation in human neurocognitive functioning and behaviour. Neurodivergent individuals experience atypical cognitive functioning and may be diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism, Dyslexia or Dyspraxia. Find out how you can best support neurodivergent staff and students and hear their experiences through shared discussion and find out how to access the resources that help us embrace neurodiversity.

The event will focus on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Autism and we will hear an introduction from Dr Lauren Marsh, from the School of Psychology, followed by personal stories from the members of University staff and PhD students. The event will be chaired by Professor Peter Licence.
