Kick-off meeting SIG Neurodiversity in education

Tuesday 23 April 2024, 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm
What exactly is neurodiversity and how do we deal with it as a university?

Neurodiversity at least challenges our common assumptions about "normal" and "abnormal" cognitive functioning. It assumes that cognitive functioning is a relational concept that cannot be understood from the individual alone. The psychological and (neuro)biological differences associated with autism and ADHD, for example, are not intrinsically pathological or abnormal, but simply the result of natural variation. These differences do not need to be 'solved' or 'cured', but primarily require a different design of the environment. Nor can they be separated from the person's individual life story and other important aspects of personal identity.

Are you interested in joining the discussion on this? Then register for the kick-off meeting and see what you can contribute to this initiative. TLC will provide lunch.

This meeting will take place on Tuesday 23 April from 12.15 - 1.15 pm (walk-in from 12.00) at Thomas van Aquinostraat 1, room 00.36 (Teachers' Lounge).
