Neurodiverse New Year’s Resolutions
On Wednesday 5th January 2022, 6-8pm GMT, we will be talking New Year’s resolutions, and the broader idea of developing good habits, from a neurodiversity perspective.
We look forward to welcoming back 2 guests from our hugely successful Neurodiversity Special in November, and to looking more closely at some of the ideas we touched on that night.
We’ll start with 2 short talks, then you’ll have the chance to share your experiences and exchange tips in group discussions.
6.00 – Welcome
6.10 – Getting sh*t done: taking charge of your executive functioning in 2022, short talk by Lynn Pilkington, Inclusion and Engagement Consultant from This is Milk.
6.30 – Yearly themes, short talk by Jamie Knight, an autistic developer from the BBC
6.45 – Group discussion with your hosts, speakers and guest panelist Angela Prentner-Smith, the dyspraxic founder and managing director of This is Milk.
7.00 – Comfort break.
7.10 – More group discussion, with option for breakout rooms depending on how many people come.
8.00 – End.
