Celebrating different minds

Neurodiversity Celebration Week 21 - 27 March 2022

Neurodiversity Celebration Week is a worldwide initiative that challenges stereotypes and misconceptions about neurological differences.

The aim is to challenge perceptions, build respect for difference and recognise the skills and talents of neurodiverse individuals. You can find out more about the week and any events taking place from the Neurodiversity Week website.

Siena Castellon established this week back in 2018 as a direct reaction to her own experience of living with autism, ADHD, Dyslexia and Dyspraxia. Her book, The Spectrum Girl’s Survival Guide: How to Grow Up Awesome and Autistic, is a brilliant guide for neurodiverse girls navigating a neurotypical world and is available as an e-book in our collections.

You can also listen to a her being interviewed about her experiences in the podcast‘ How to Fail …with Elizabeth Day’ 

We have pulled together a list of digital and print resources in the library collections that explain, support and champion the neurodivergent.

You can also use the University’s software finder to  discover tools that may be useful to those with a neurodivergence. Browse by categories such as ‘time management’, ‘wellbeing’ or ‘accesability’ to find recommended apps.

Finally, remember that expert help is available from Student support and Wellbeing.
