This three-hour CPD-accredited seminar introduces participants to neurodiversity in the justice system and working with minds of all kinds.

The course is suitable for all justice system workplaces, including for chambers staff, barristers, the probation service, prisons and more. It is also suitable for any organisations campaigning on issues related to neurodiversity in the justice system.

The seminar examines the barriers that workplaces and the justice system put in the way of colleagues, clients and others who are autistic, dyspraxic, dyslexic or dyscalculic or have ADHD or Tourette syndrome.

Through participatory learning, we apply the social model of disability to identify measures to reduce these barriers, and highlight the positive contributions that neurominorities make.

 After this seminar, you will know more about neurodiversity in the justice system and have ideas (and enthusiasm!) for making your work more neuro-inclusive.

Usual price: £1,000. Discounts apply for non-profit and public sector organisations.

Incredibly useful

A number of staff and barristers attended Janine’s training in Neurodiversity in the Justice System. The training involved general information on many neurodivergent conditions, case studies and provided a guide for further learning. The training was very informative, interesting and engaging and all attendees found it incredibly useful. We plan on doing further training with Janine very soon.

Our Values: we believe

  • that humanity is neurologically diverse and that this is beneficial
  • that minority neurotypes bring strengths as well as challenges
  • that your organisation will be stronger if it becomes more inclusive of neurodivergent people
  • in the social model of disability, understanding that society disables people who have impairments and/or differences
  • in the slogan ‘Nothing About Us Without Us’ – that barriers can only be removed by listening to neurodivergent people rather than talking over us
  • in accessibility as standard, not ‘as required’
  • that neurodivergent people need more than ‘awareness’: we need equality, rights and acceptance.
  • that training is most effective when it is participatory and enjoyable
