NEURODIVERSITY SPEAKER SERIES

The Neurodiversity Speaker Series features a lineup of renowned experts, including educators, mental health professionals, and advocates specializing in neurodiversity. It provides families with valuable insights and tools to better support and connect with neurodivergent learners, including those with autism, ADHD, dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, and more.

This collaborative initiative seeks to foster understanding, empathy, and inclusion by equipping families and communities with the knowledge and resources they need to create supportive environments for their uniquely wired learners.

All events take place live virtually on Zoom from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. PST and will offer simultaneous Spanish interpretation. Please RSVP for event details and Zoom links. Events will be recorded for asynchronous viewing.

About the Neurodiversity Speaker Series

Families and educators who support neurodivergent youth are always looking for trusted, helpful and practical resources to support neurodiversity. The Neurodiversity Speaker Series includes free, virtual events that have been crafted with their specific needs, issues, challenges, and opportunities in mind.

The Neurodiversity Speaker Series is presented by The Parent Venture, Children’s Health Council, Compass High School, REEL2E, and The RILEY Project, with major funding from the Educating All Learners Alliance (EALA). Our consortium of nonprofit organizations shares a common mission to address the needs of families and educators of students who learn differently.
