Neurodiversity IW 2019, Riverside Centre, Friday, 08. November 2019

Aimed at neurodivergent adults, parents, carers and family members of neurodivergent people, and professionals working in the field, this conference will bring national and international speakers to the Isle of Wight to share their knowledge and expertise. Around one third of our speakers are neurodiverse themselves, a further third are parents or carers of neurodiverse people, and all of our speakers are leaders within their fields.
The conference will be free to attend, but you must book your place. There will be a range of presentations and workshops on the day. Individual sessions will be bookable on the day. Due to constraints on numbers we are unable to guarantee places on any specific session, but there will be several streams on the day and there will always be something of interest!
