About The Event
Why Are Neurodiverse Girls So Often Missed?
There can be a significant cost to not recognising the needs of neurodiverse girls. They are often missed, despite exhibiting clear signs. Why? The answers are complex and nuanced.
Join us for an evening soiree to consider how and why neurodiversity in girls is missed and the hidden or time delayed cost this may incur to their emotional wellbeing and mental health.
The talk will take place between 7 and 9pm, which includes 30 minutes of Q&A at the end. Doors will 'open' at 6pm and between 6.15pm and 6.45pm we will be offering peer networking sessions using breakout rooms - so come early and take the chance to chat and get to know some new friends and colleagues.
We will email you nearer the time to get an idea of who would like to join the networking groups, but of course you're welcome to just join for the talk from 7pm onwards.
