This talk discusses why neurodiversity teaching can be a promising strategy to facilitate positive changes at school, and why it adds value to autism-specific training and awareness activities. It then introduces the goals and content of the Learning About Neurodiversity at School (LEANS) resources, how schools might adopt LEANS, and evidence from the evaluation study.
Finally, it steps back to consider the larger community. What does neurodiversity teaching and learning have to do with families, advocates and professionals outside of education, and what can we all do to promote understanding of this topic?
