ITAKOM speakers will include neuroscientists and nutritionists, campaigners, clinicians, comedians, artists, actors, speakers with lived experience and carers to mention just a few; and they will address the topic of neurodiversity from personal, practitioner and academic experience.
Each stream of the conference is framed around a different level at which we can explore neurodiversity – Cells, Circuits, Cognition and Community. Each themed discussion will combine expertise from research and practice – with neurodivergent speakers represented in every part of the programme.
It Takes All Kinds Of Minds will leave no mind left behind.
