Friday opening keynote panel discussion

Friday 8 October 2021, 9:30am - 10:30am

Neurodiversity and the social model of disability. What difference does it make?

The term ‘neurodiversity’ has been around since the mid-'90s, but what is neurodiversity? Who does it refer to? And how can considering neurodiverse cohorts positively impact outcomes for children and young people with SEND?

Featuring an address from leading academic Professor Amanda Kirby and important updates from key policy influencers, this keynote panel discussion is one not to be missed.

The keynote discussion is free to attend. You can reserve your place after you've completed your free registration for the Tes SEN Show.
