Neurodiversity – Masterclass Series

About this event

The IoN RDPU presents a Masterclass series on Neurodiversity.

Having begun in February 2021, the series will be entering its second year in 2022. We aim to showcase a diverse range of speakers and subjects from across the globe and the Neurodiverse community, academia, and industry . Previous speakers include Judy Singer, Prof Simon Baron Cohen. All previous sessions can be watched back here.

All are welcome to join.

Sessions take place monthly, on the fourth Thursday of the month. Register here; a link to the zoom sessions will be sent to you the day before the webinar.

The next session is on 23rd February Nathan Hughes – ‘Ensuring rights to justice for children affected by neurodisability.’ Nathan Hughes is Professor of Adolescent Health and Justice, and Head of the Department of Sociological Studies at the University of Sheffield. His research is at the interface between social policy, criminology and developmental sciences, highlighting the disproportionate prevalence of various childhood health and developmental difficulties among young people in our criminal justice systems.
