What is Neurodiversity?'
Neurodiversity is a relatively new term that refers to people who have dyslexia, autism, ADHD, dyspraxia and other neurological conditions. These are 'spectrum' conditions, with a wide range of characteristics, but which nevertheless share some common features in terms of how people learn and process information.
Take the Adult Dyslexia Checklist
We recognise that if you are suffering from a neurological condition on the Autism spectrum your learning experience with us can be adversely affected.
If you feel comfortable with disclosing your condition we can review the format of the training and make any adjustments you may require in advance of the start of training.
If you don't feel able to disclose your condition, our tutor and other delegates may not understand that you are having difficulties and will not be able to assist you.
We promise to adopt best practice in training for delegates with a neurological condition.
