Neurodiversity Celebration Week 2024 Monday 18 - Friday 22 March 2024!

18 Mar 2024 10:30 AM | Anonymous

Neurodiversity Celebration Week is a worldwide plan that challenges stereotypes and misconceptions and celebrates different minds about neurological differences, whilst providing opportunities to recognise the talents and the positive aspects.

Throughout the week there will be activities which everyone can get involved in, including inspirational speakers from a wide variety of backgrounds and professions. These speakers will focus on key neurodiversity topics and will aim to educate. All of these events are free of charge and anyone can access them.

Siena Castellon, founder of Neurodiversity Celebration Week said “I founded Neurodiversity Celebration Week in 2018 because I wanted to change the way learning differences are perceived. As a teenager who is autistic and has ADHD, dyslexia and dyspraxia, my experience has been that people often focus on the challenges of neurological diversity. I wanted to change the narrative and create a balanced view which focuses equally on our talents and strengths.”

What is Neurodiversity?

Neurodiversity is the idea that neurological differences, such as autism, ADHA, dyslexia, and others, are natural variations of the human brain rather than disorders that need to be cured or fixed it. It emphasizes the value of embracing these differences and promoting acceptance, inclusion, and support for neurodiverse individuals in society.
