Launch event recording: The Learning About Neurodiversity at School (LEANS) resource pack for primary schools 

The words “Jump for Joy!” appear in orange over a cartoon image of a jumping child. At the bottom of the poster, text reads: “The LEANS resource pack is coming in June 2022! Learning about neurodiversity at school (LEANS) is a free teaching tool for mainstream primary schools. Get the details at our online launch event for schools and educators (everyone welcome). Tuesday June 14th, 16:00-17:30 GMT\"

To celebrate the launch of the LEANS resource pack, the LEANS research and design teams held a free online launch event on June 14th, 2022.  

The full event recording, including Q&A, is now online! This event introduced the who, what, when, where and why of the LEANS resources, placing them in the larger context of why teaching neurodiversity is beneficial and important. Speakers included educators from the LEANS participatory design team and members of the research team—and also a special preview of one of our LEANS stories.  

While this event focused on education professionals in the UK, we’d also recommend it for families, community members, and organisations who are interested in understanding what LEANS is about and how it might benefit children and young people.
