Course details

Neurodiversity is a term we are starting to hear more and more often, but what does it mean? The term comes from ‘neuro,’ meaning the brain, and ‘diversity,’ meaning different, so the term simply means that our brains all behave differently and that these differences should be recognised, embraced and respected.

When we talk about neurodiversity this can cover a wide range of differences, such as dyslexia, ADHD, mental health and autism. The concept of neurodiversity recognises that, for those with difficulties, things like retaining information, learning new things or maintaining focus can be more difficult. By embracing neurodiversity, we can reduce the stigma and make it easier for people to access support and get help to build their confidence, self-esteem, motivation and resilience and ultimately to help people to achieve their personal goals.

On this course you will find out more about the whole range of courses that we have on offer to raise awareness on a range of neurodiversity topics.

What are you doing to keep learners safe?

The safety of our learners and staff is our top priority and we’ve made some big changes to our centres, from socially-distanced training rooms to staggered start times. Although things will look different, our staff will be as friendly and helpful as ever and we’re really excited to welcome learners back.

If you’re concerned about visiting one of our centres, please get in touch so we can discuss it with you.
