Neurodiversity - A Societal Question



Neurodiversity - A Societal Question:  Does it matter and are there unintentional risks? Can we be doing more to screen, identify, support include and plan?"

Neurodiversity is a difficult topic; many people do not understand it, the world of mental health and/or many feel uncomfortable with the labels it applies. Thom Kirkwood, Engagement and Participation Officer asks whether in a modern complex world obsessed with labelling, it is time to have a meaningful grown up societal discussion on what this all means.

The Network is delighted that the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufacturers and Commerce) has published Thom's article "Neurodiversity: A Societal Challenge".  Thom's paper in its entirety can be read by clicking here: "Neurodiversity – A societal question: Does it matter and are there unintentional risks?
