This session will introduce neurodiversity and its vital role in the social work workforce and explore different neurotypes, their strength and challenges. It will look at how as a profession we can work towards a culture change embedded in psychological safety to ensure we create inclusive spaces for neurodivergent social workers and, importantly, the people we work with.

Attend this session to:

• Be able to recognise a range of different neurotypes
