Learning About Neurodiversity at School (LEANS) & LEANS-C
Salvesen Mindroom Centre is a proud partner in LEANS – Learning About Neurodiversity at School.
It’s a free curriculum for mainstream primary schools to introduce pupils aged 8-11 years to the concept of neurodiversity, and how it impacts our experiences at school.
To view or download the resources, and find out more about the project including how it was developed and evaluated visit the LEANS webpage.
LEANS-C is about creating a LEANS Community. We want to enable the parents and carers of neurodivergent children to be aware of LEANS, so they can introduce the LEANS programme to their child’s school if they feel that would be right for them. Resources for parents and carers to help them have that conversation with their child’s school are available.Visit LEANS-C resources
Moving Schools Toolkit for Children & Young People
Moving school is a significant transition for any child, but particularly those who are neurodivergent. We have created our Moving Schools toolkit to help children prepare for this transition and share their views about it with the adults around them.
