We often talk about the diagnosis and treatment of neurodivergent children but spend much less time understanding the actual experience of being neurodivergent. Neurodiversity refers to people who experience and interact with the world around them in ways that are considered different from typical expectations and include autism, ADHD, mental health, and other related experiences.
AmCham Shanghai's Education Committee invites you to a session about neurodivergent learning on March 23, 3:30-5:00 pm. A keynote speaker and a panel will share their insights into the experience of neurodivergence and how to best support students in Shanghai international schools.
It will be a hybrid event. Zoom link will be sent to online attendees before the event.
3:30-3:40 pm: Opening & Introduction
3:40- 4:10 pm: Keynote speech by Dr. Shari Rosen, PhD
