At the end of Neurodiversity Celebration Week John visted Chilworth House School to meet with the staff team and learn about what they had been doing to celebrate the week. Chilworth House School, which is near Wheatley, is a specialist school set up to meets the needs of a diverse group of pupils with complex educational needs, communication difficulties and challenging behaviours.
Concluding the visit John said: "It was a great opportunity to meet with the staff and some of the pupils and to learn about what they are doing. The school provides a fantastic opportunity for young people who find it difficult to learn within the mainstream school system, enabling them to work towards their full potential. There was a great family atmosphere in the school which clearly helped the young people to settle and learn. My thanks to all of the team for all that they do."
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. They want to help people understand, value and celebrate the talents of neurodiverse minds. ADHD, autism, dyslexia, and dyspraxia
