EDI Community of Practice: Supporting young people who are neurodiverse

Our next EDI Community of Practice will be addressing how youth workers can best support young people who are neurodiverse. This session will be mix of speakers and interactive discussion groups.

We will be joined by Scottish Autism who will set the scene around neurodiversity, what is meant by it and what language is most appropriate to use.

Borders Additional Needs Group (BANG) will demonstrate what supportive youth work looks like in reality, sharing some of their practice and insights.

Finally, we will be hearing from Education Scotland on the existing frameworks, such as the Inclusion, Wellbeing and Equality Framework and how you can use this to inform your practice.
