This work illustrates a unique insight from young people who are actually going through the struggle of what it means to be "different" in school and how it can negatively impact a young person’s development. In order for change to happen we need to listen to those who are at the forefront of the negative experiences. - Emily Thomas

Facing Neurodiversity

How do we see neurodiversity?

These large scale banners stem from discussions with young people on how they would like dyslexia, dyspraxia and autism to be represented. A call to action for neurodiversity to be seen as a whole picture, with benefits as well as challenges, in order for young people to be able to flourish in the way they deserve.
