Neurodiversity Celebration and Autism Acceptance Events

Neurodiversity Celebration Week is a worldwide initiative that challenges stereotypes and misconceptions about neurological differences. It aims to transform how neurodivergent individuals are perceived and supported by providing schools, universities, and organisations with the opportunity to recognise the many talents and advantages associated with different ways of thinking, while creating more inclusive and equitable cultures that celebrate differences and empower every individual.

There is a diverse schedule of free events for you to enjoy across the week including introductory webinars, panel discussions and more. All of the sessions aim to educate and encourage conversations around neurodiversity and provide a safe space where you can join thousands of people in celebrating different minds.

Topics include:

  • The Language of Neurodiversity
  • An Introduction to Neurodiversity – Let’s Change the Narrative!
  • Understanding & Empowering Neurodiversity & Children
  • Neurodiversity – Good Practice for educators
  • Autism / ADHD in Women & Girls: Under-identified & Under-supported

World Autism Acceptance Week – 23rd March to 3rd April

Celebrating their 60th anniversary World Autism Acceptance Week aims to educate people in what it feels like to be autistic, both the strengths and the challenges. Their aim is that no-one should feel judged for being autistic or to have to wait many months or even years for a diagnosis, help and support.

The National Autistic Society wants society to change and for autistic children, adults and their families to be understood, supported and accepted in their communities, workplaces and schools.

There are posters, fundraising packs and more to be found on the website all of which can help is to support such a great week.
