13 – 19 March 2023

What is Neurodiversity Celebration Week?

Neurodiversity Celebration Week is a worldwide initiative that challenges stereotypes and misconceptions about neurological differences. It aims to transform how neurodivergent individuals are perceived and supported by providing schools, universities, and organisations with the opportunity to recognise the many talents and advantages of being neurodivergent, while creating more inclusive and equitable cultures that celebrate differences and empower every individual.

“I founded Neurodiversity Celebration Week in 2018 because I wanted to change the way learning differences are perceived. As a teenager who is autistic and has ADHD, dyslexia, and dyspraxia, my experience has been that people often focus on the challenges of neurological diversity. I wanted to change the narrative and create a balanced view which focuses equally on our talents and strengths.”  
Siena Castellon, Founder

With Neurodiversity Celebration Week taking place the week after International Women’s Day, it is more important than ever for us to consider why there are more women and girls coming forward identifying as neurodivergent.

  • How neurodiversity presents differently in women and girls
  • Why women and girls are so often misdiagnosed
  • The challenges of masking
  • The challenges and benefits of having a diagnosis
  • Which accommodations and support can be most beneficial

Join an exciting panel discussion where to hear different perspectives and voices from neurodivergent women including: Sam Hiew Founder and Director of ADHD Girls, Charlotte Valeur Institute Of Neurodiversity and ION Emma Case Women Beyond the Box.
