Please join WCDA for a Lunch & Learn session that will explore strategies for communicating with students and clients with neurodivergent conditions. 

Our speaker notes that the term neurodivergence describes when a person's brain functions differently to what we consider typical or normal. In addition, Neurodiversity in Business defines neurodiversity as “the amazing variety in human neurology, thinking, communication styles, and expression.” 

In this session, our speaker will be leveraging her professional training in the field and will also draw upon her personal journey as a neurodivergent person. Through this combination of her personal and professional experience, she will share communication strategies that help shape inclusive workplaces and support individuals with diverse needs.
