Want to better support your students with neurodiversity? In this workshop, we will review common forms of neurodiversity such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, autism, and ADHD and identify obstacles faced by neurodivergent students in academia. You will be introduced to strategies and resources for supporting these students, and explore ways to implement these strategies through group collaboration.
By the end of this workshop, participants will be prepared to:
- Describe what neurodiversity is and its common forms and experiences.
- Recognize ways that neurodivergent students may experience difficulties with typical teaching methods.
- Explain the difference between the medical and social models of disability.
- Brainstorm new methods for creating inclusive and accessible classes for neurodivergent students.
