Closed petition Require all teachers have termly training about signs of neurodiversity.

Around 1 in 5 are neurodivergent. It's crucial to make neurodiversity training compulsory for teachers. This training should cover not only the more obvious signs of neurodiversity, but also the more subtle/internalised signs, particularly in girls who are three times less likely to be diagnosed.

More details

To prevent neurodivergent children facing significant challenges and struggles in their academic and social lives that can lead to severe mental health conditions, such as depression and eating disorders, and misdiagnosis which can cause further problems and negative coping mechanisms, such as drug addiction and crime. It’s important to recognize that neurodiversity is a natural variation in human behaviour and should be celebrated, not stigmatised.
