Teaching for Neurodiversity Webinars

Teaching for Neurodiversity ‘Train the Trainer’ is now available as a series of 3 one-hour webinars covering all the materials delivered in the live training events. The webinars are designed for members of staff who will be cascading the training to colleagues in their schools/educational settings.

The 3 sessions comprise:

  • Part 1: Seeing the whole picture - this session introduces and discusses the purpose of the Teaching for Neurodiversity training. It focuses on learner profiling and introduces a number of case studies as examples

  • Part 2: Understanding neurodiversity - the second session discusses definitions of neurodiversity and specific learning differences (SpLD), particularly emphasising how different SpLD co-occur. It introduces a combined checklist for neurodiversity/SpLD and discusses how this can be used in schools and other educational settings

Webinar Part 2 for Primary and Secondary

Webinar Part 2 for Post 16

Part 3: Classroom support strategies - the final session suggests a range of easy to implement strategies to help in making the classroom or learning environment more accessible to all learners.

Feedback from our first event in Putney:

"Good afternoon,

I attended a neurodiversity workshop today at Putney High School and I just wanted to let you know the presenters and the workshop were both exceptional. The ability to access the content before the session was very useful for structuring notes and making some of my own preparation. The content of the workshop was extremely useful and delivered in a way which allowed attendees to think about how it would apply in their own school.

The presenters worked very well together drawing on each other and their areas of expertise to deliver content. They were friendly and supportive of all comments and participation by attendees. 

I am a second year teacher and SEN link for the English department at Oasis Academy Shirley Park. I can already see how we can incorporate aspects of the workshop into the whole school.

Please thank the presenters for doing such a wonderful job today.


Erin Caine"

"I enjoyed the day especially for the opportunity to meet with other professionals and share ideas.  We have only recently started to work with secondary schools and seeing your neurodiversity power point slides, which are very visual and thought provoking, made me re-think our presentations."
