Train the Trainer - Supporting neurodivergent children and young people

Salvesen Mindroom Centre

Find out how you can begin to support neurodivergent children and young people, and how to share your knowledge with others.

About this event

Join our virtual workshop to raise understanding of, and improve support for, neurodivergent children and young people who may experience learning difficulties and their families. Learn how our short films about Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, DCD, and Tourette Syndrome can be used to expand your own knowledge and understanding of neurodiversity in a way that you can share. Reflect on your own practice and consider adaptations that you can make to enhance the support you can offer.

Receive training on the workshop notes that accompany the films which will enable you to share this introductory course to staff or volunteers in your own setting.

Cost includes:

• Shared learning with practitioners with a range of professional and personal


• 5 short films from our ‘It takes all kinds of minds’ series for use in your own


• A copy of the workshop notes to accompany the films. The notes are suitable for
