Nurturing Healthy Minds - Neurodiversity

Learn more about how the brain develops and influences behaviour and decision-making, so you can better support all tamariki.


The word neurodiversity has become common in our education system and an increasing number of learners are being diagnosed with conditions such as ADHD, autism and dyslexia. For educators this can be daunting, especially in a classroom where there are a number of neurodiverse learners.

In this workshop, neuroscience trainer Kathryn Berkett explains how the brain develops and influences behaviour. You’ll learn:

  • common characteristics of neurodiverse learners
  • how the classroom environment can impact them
  • strategies to support neurodiverse tamariki
  • the impact you can have on all learners.

Hosted by experienced facilitator Cat Levine, these workshops are designed for teachers and learning support staff  across the education system - from early childhood through to secondary schools.  

Workshops are held on weekdays from 3.30-5pm. 

Cost: $85 pp or $80 pp for groups of 10 or more (plus GST). Payment can be made online via credit card or via invoice direct to your school.

Please note registration fees must be paid prior to the workshop. If this is not possible, please contact us to make alternative arrangements. Your Zoom link will be sent out when payment is received.
