Neurodiversity and the Student Experience

Neurodiversity (Specific Learning Differences) and the Student Learning Experience

Led by Jagjeet Jutley-Neilson this WIHEA learning circle aims to bring together academics that are interested in exploring the Learning Experience of Students who identify as having Specific Learning Differences/Neurodivergent.

Neurodiversity or Specific learning differences is a term that is commonly used to describe people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) including Asperger’s, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dyspraxia, Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder (AD(H)D); co-occurrence amongst these is also common.

The aims of this learning circle are to explore:

  • What is the Learning Experience of students who identify as being Neurodivergent (Specific Learning Differences) at Warwick (e.g. transition, curriculum, student opportunity, wellbeing, SU and wider student experience)?
  • Explore existing literature (e.g. terminology, lived experiences)
  • How do we support Neurodivergent (Specific Learning Differences) students once they are here and post two years after graduation (student cycle)?
  • What are Staff experiences and approaches to teaching inclusively; do they feel supported, how do staff design course/modules that are inclusive for all?
  • What are the experiences of staff who teach and identify as Neurodivergent (Specific Learning Differences)?
