Neurodiversity Staff Network
The Neurodiversity Staff Network is group of staff who have experience of and/or interest in neurodiversity.
What we do
- We hold 'Let’s Talk Neurodiversity' sessions once a month. This is an informal space in which to learn more about neurodiversity and share stories and strategies.
- We hold Staff Neurodiversity Network meetings once a month. These meetings focus on planning future activities, raising awareness, events, and addressing areas of University practice which could be adapted to better suit the needs of neurodiverse staff.

It is estimated that around 1 in 7 people are neurodivergent, meaning that the brain functions, learns and processes information differently (source ACAS).
Neurodivergence manifests in many forms including autistic spectrum conditions (including Asperger’s Syndrome), ADHD, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, dyslexia, dyspraxia and Tourette’s syndrome. These conditions are not always visible but can result in different needs when it comes to communicating with others.
