Welcome Address & Opening Keynote: Enabling Neurodiverse Young People to Thrive at School

09:30 - 10:30

Step into the shoes of neurodiverse pupils and understand the school experience from their point of view in this session led by Pooky and her 13-year-old daughter Lyra who are both autistic.  We’ll explore the day-to-day challenges of life in school, both in the classroom and beyond and consider why and how we can make simple adaptations to our daily practice, culture, and environments to enable pupils with autism to attend, enjoy and succeed.
