We Invite You to Join Us in Celebrating and Embracing Neurodiverse Strengths
About this Event
As part of Neurodiversity Celebration Week, we invite you to join us at the first ever Neurodiversity Youth Summit.
Much too often, schools focus on what SEN students can’t do, instead of recognising and celebrating the many strengths and positive aspects of being neurodiverse. This can be very demoralising and can make us loose sight of our talents and strengths.
We are the dreamers. The pioneers. The change-makers. The future business leaders. We are the trailbalzers, The adventures. The discovers. We are the Einsteins and Bransons of tomorrow.
If you are a secondary school student, please join us in a unique evening that will focus on empowering neurodivergent youth to harness their potential, change the way they perceive themselves and view their future as being full of promise and exciting opportunities.
