This Disability and Neurodiversity Awareness training will explore and demystify many of the topics and questions around this important subject.

We’ll look at topics including definitions, language, the Equality Act and reasonable adjustments, and have an in-depth look at ADHD and autism.

The training will be delivered in a conversational style, with questions and discussion encouraged, and we promise there will be no homework!
