๐ŸŒˆ Most people are neurotypical, meaning that the brain functions and processes information in the way society expects.


๐ŸŒˆ However around one in seven people - c.15%+ of people in the UK - are neurodivergent.


๐ŸŒˆ If you want to get a better idea of how someone who is neuro diverse sees the world have a look at this powerful short video on Neuro Diversity in the work place by the BBC. https://lnkd.in/g3MtFTQD


๐ŸŒˆ It certainly makes you think about the working environment and how sensory processing can massively impact neuro diverse people's experience.


๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘ Thank you Ben Miller FRSA for running a very insightful session this morning on behalf of First Ascent Group and The Oakridge Centre.

Thanks Simone Robinson CertIoDNatalie Griffiths (she/her)Steve Bentley for organising these EDI sessions.


There were some great reminders about:

๐ŸŽฏ Why there is so much interest in Neuro Diversity.

๐ŸŽฏ The impact of Human's past and present on the evolution of our brains.

๐ŸŽฏ Embracing Variances and being careful of labelling.

๐ŸŽฏ The Types of Neuro diversity.

๐ŸŽฏ Why our brain is divided and hemispheric habits and pattern recognition.


As always its great to engage with colleagues with similar interests
