Neurodiversity Awareness

The Diversity and Inclusion team will be creating of a comprehensive set of materials and resources centered around Neurodiversity. This initiative will encompass support for individuals, managerial guidance, and general information on neuroinclusion.

The first document to be unveiled is our Neurodiversity Quick Guide (PDF, 231KB), which is available for download in PDF format. While this guide has been tailored to line managers and staff, we anticipate that some of its content will also prove valuable to students. We are excited to embark on this journey of promoting neurodiversity and fostering a more inclusive environment within LJMU.

Following the launch of our Neurodiversity Quick Guide, the Diversity and Inclusion Team is delighted to share further resources which we have produced, tailored to line managers and staff. We anticipate that some of its content will also prove valuable to students and inclusive teaching practices.
