Neurodiversity Celebration Week 2024

Neurosdiversity; Neurodiversity logo, Neurodiversity icon

Neurodiversity Celebration Week (18 – 24 March) aims to change the way that neurodiversity is perceived. People often focus on the challenges of being neurodivergent, but neurodivergent people also have many unique strengths and think about the world differently, making them a tremendous asset to any team that wants to improve how they do things.

Published 25 March 2024

The organisers behind Neurodiversity Celebration Week have put together a line-up of 24 events throughout the week. All the events are free of charge and open to everyone.

Did you know?

  • Just like anyone no two neurodivergent people are the same - e.g. if you've met one autistic person, then you've met one autistic person.
  • Although we talk about specific integrodifferences such as Autism, ADHD and Dyslexia, people often have several overlapping conditions.
  • Every neurodivergent individual has a unique pattern of strengths and challenges.
  • We tend to operate on an approach to diagnosis and labels, which can mean that quite often, the focus is on the challenges rather than the many strengths and talents of neurodivergent individuals.
  • It’s important that we take a person-centred approach by tailoring strategies to each individual.
  • It is important to remove the many barriers neurodivergent people might face, either in accessing healthcare and education or in coming to work.
  • It’s essential to harness the strengths and talents of neurodivergent individuals; this helps to build confidence and self-esteem and ensures individuals are given the opportunity to flourish in their day-to-day.
