    About This Event

    Divergent Minds, Inspired Designs

    Neurodivergent learners must navigate a world established for those with neurotypical cognitive processing. This results in learners who have tremendous potential but feel as though they are inadequate due to their differences. However, research provides a strong body of evidence indicating that neurodivergent learners have remarkable abilities and can often provide innovations and insights that surpass those of their neurotypical counterparts. This workshop offers a strengths-based approach to designing educational experiences for neurodivergent learners.
