Seed Talks: The Science of Adhd: Navigating Neurodiversity in a Neurotypical World
With Dr Lucy Thompson. Join us for this enlightening talk about Adhd, followed by Q&A.
A simple scroll through Instagram or TikTok and you’ll be left questioning: do I have Adhd? The rise in Adhd in adults is undeniable. But only over the last decade has Adhd been formally recognised in the UK. It has been suggested that about 1.5 million adults in the UK have ADHD but only 120,000 have been diagnosed. Waiting times to access an adult Adhd specialist clinic in the NHS can be up to 2 years or more. It’s hard to find support and help.
From dopamine dips, hits and myths, how Adhd can present differently in women than men, and the neuroscience of neurodiversity; this talk is designed to give you an increased awareness and understanding of an ADHD brain. It will include advice and tips on how to navigate a neurotypical world as a person who is neurodiverse.
This talk will also highlight how society is demanding change. People are increasingly recognising and accepting neurodiversity and self-defining as neurodiverse. Surely, it’s time for the world to alter neurotypical societal standards as they are fast becoming outdated.
