PDXWIT Presents: Why Neurodiversity is Essential to our Future


Registration through Zoom https://us02web.zoom.us/.../reg.../WN_l5O9aW2dRue7rXouRSIUIA is required to gain entry to this virtual event

Join PDXWIT, Torri Wright, Founder and CEO at BEHCA and Lori Eberly, LCSW, Author, Founder and Facilitator of Radius ECD as we explore diverse perspectives through the lens of neurodiversity.

Who is to say what specific neurology is going to be ideal at any given moment? Having diverse perspectives and neural-processing opens up pathways for new discoveries and solving complex problems. The barrier is overcoming bias to see past assumptions and appreciate the brain process that may very well solve a critical problem. How can we learn to communicate with one another differently and avoid quick, bias-filled, assumptions that otherwise exclude neurodiverse populations? Following the presentation, we hope to hear from you all on your perspective.
