Welcome to the Neurodiversity Toolkit

This project aimed to help academics at the university to support neurodivergent students, by creating an interactive toolkit with resources and exemplars collected from the staff community and supported by testimonies from neurodivergent students. It is hoped that this will reduce the disparity of students' experiences in the future.
