Free Courses on Supporting Neurodiversity


Following on from ten previous successful sessions in 2023, we are offering further free Neurodiversity training courses.

The new dates are:

  • 23rd March – 1st Denmead HQ, Hawk district, postcode: PO7 6JU, 11am until 4pm
  • 21st April – Base2000: Basingstoke Air Scouts HQ, Basingstoke East district, postcode: RG24 9AE, 10.30am until 3.30pm
  • Two TBC in Autumn.

The course is provided by Ellie Hunt. Ellie is a neurodivergent neurodiversity advocate, with lived experience of autism and ADHD, and a teacher with 20 years experience working to support access and equity for young people with a wide range of differences that create barriers to education.

The day will look at what neurodivergence is, covering autism, ADHD and specific learning differences like dyslexia, how these might present themselves when at Scouts and how we can make reasonable adjustments to avoid what others may potentially see as challenging behaviours. 

A light lunch will be provided, however our ability to cater to dietary requirements is limited to vegetarian only, so unfortunately if anyone has any further food intolerances, they will need to cater for themselves.   

Booking is first-come-first-served by emailing Kelly Taylor and you can also notify her of any additional needs the organisers need to be aware of.
