There is a wide range of differences in human brains and behaviours, with no one “normal” way to be. This is neurodiversity. The neurodivergent community is organizing and advocating for change.
This workshop will introduce the guiding concepts of the neurodiversity movement, from the perspective of a Social Worker with late-diagnosed ADHD. We will look at Adult ADHD beyond the DSM criteria, and how neurodivergent identities connect to neuroscience and the disability rights movement. We will then explore tools, tips and takeaways to support Social Workers in their work with members of the neurodivergent community.
