This event was 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.
We are indebted to over 50 speakers including experts on neurodiversity in the workplace, neuroscientists and nutritionists; campaigners, clinicians, comedians; actors, artists and activists to name just a few. All of them provided invaluable insights into how to better understand our differences, capture the richness of neurodiversity, and provide effective support where it is needed.
We are also deeply grateful to the many partners who worked hard to make our event a neurodiversity-affirmative space. Many delegates have told us how comfortable they felt to be themselves. While we know it also took a lot of energy to attend the event, we have the impression is was worth it!
