What is ITAKOM?
ITAKOM is an international conference entirely focused on the far-reaching concept of neurodiversity.
Bringing together different perspectives, we can better understand neurodiversity, and create a neurodiversity affirmative world.
Join us in-person in Edinburgh or attend virtually if you cannot be with us in person.
Who should attend?
The meeting will draw together HR workplace professionals, practitioners, academics, the care sector—and of course, parents, siblings and families.
From all those categories and more we welcome neurodivergent people of all kinds.
ITAKOM will present the latest knowledge and visions for the future of embracing neurodiversity.
The Edinburgh International Conference Centre is situated in the heart of Scotland’s historic capital city. This purpose built conference centre is the perfect setting to host a global event like ITAKOM.
This event is for anyone who believes in a society that embraces the differences between people. These differences are apparent in diagnoses like Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Down Syndrome, Fragile x Syndrome, Tourette Syndrome and many others.
Over 50 speakers will include experts on neurodiversity in the workplace, neuroscientists and nutritionists; campaigners, clinicians, comedians; actors, artists and activists to name just a few. All of them will be providing insights into how to better understand our differences, capture the richness of neurodiversity, and provide effective support where it is needed.
Whether you are already familiar with the concept of neurodiversity, or the idea is quite new to you, you will find something for you at this conference!
Throughout his impressive career, our newly announced speaker, Rory Bremner, has enthralled audiences across the UK with hilarious impersonations of PMs and Presidents from Major to Mandela, Blair to Brown, Clinton to Cameron and Bush to Trump.
And as himself? Well, he’s been a presenter, writer, quiz-show host, actor, translator…he’s even done a stint as a ballroom dancer on Saturday prime time favourite Strictly.
