Teaching & Learning


Supporting Neurodivergent Students, 12 February 2024 (online)

12 February 2024, 10:30 am–12:30 pm

This workshop is for Supervisors and Personal Tutors at UCL. All groups of people (in classrooms, workplaces, and communities) are naturally neurodiverse. But neurodiversity is not always conspicuous, comprehensible, or easily categorised. Individuals may have one or multiple types of neurodivergence. Some neurodivergent individuals may possess diagnoses such as ADHD, autism, dyslexia, or dyspraxia, either singularly or in combination. Others may not have any formal diagnoses, or if they do, may choose not to share that information.

This event is free.
