The learners we support are often affected by disabilities and/or Specific Learning Differences.
Often these are due to neurodiversity. There is a great deal of variation among human brains and human minds, and this variation is called neurodiversity. Different people think differently – not just because of differences in culture or life experience, but because their brains are “wired” to work differently. This term highlights the different set of skills, abilities and ways of thinking rather than emphasises issues and problems.
Here are some common conditions and a focus on associated strengths. Click on the links for more details.
Please remember, it helps to talk! We don’t assume anything, so if the learner can tell us about their condition, how it affects them, any triggers or strategies used then the better able we are to tailor the support.
