It is Neurodiversity Celebration Week (13th -19th March), a worldwide initiative that aims to transform how neurodivergent individuals are perceived and supported.
To mark this important week we caught up with members of The Autism Education Trust’s Young Autistic Expert’s Panel to chat about neurodiversity. The Autism Education Trust (AET) is the leading not-for-profit programme that helps education professionals acquire knowledge and confidence in supporting autistic children and young people in education settings. Their Autistic Young Experts Panel is made up of 19 autistic young people from across England who add their voices and life experience to AET projects and input on strategy. Watch the video below to hear some members of the panel chat about the positives of neurodiversity.
