Accessibility and the Neurodiverse Campus Community
In this webinar, we’re inviting Tara Connolly, to speak about increasing accessibility to a full neurodiversity of thinkers in post-secondary spaces. Join us as we look at the concept of neurodiversity and begin to consider how to incorporate this lens in building accessible practices throughout a campus community.
