In this session, Dr. Tony Lloyd, Chief Executive of ADHD Foundation – The Neurodiversity Charity, explores recent research indicating why prevalence of neurodiversity for LGBT+ people is double that of the general population and what this means in terms of cumulative cultural, educational and economic exclusion. The session also introduces the key concepts of neurodiversity and the proposition that there is an evolutionary reason why humankind has naturally occurring neurotypes such as dyslexia, ADHD, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia and autism. Dr. Lloyd is joined by Caroline Gillwood, Head of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at Royal Voluntary Service.
