Lexxic, neurodiversity consultants who are leaders in empowering neurodiversity in the workplace, will be hosting several free engaging events and panel discussions throughout October, in line with key awareness dates across the month.
Lexxic is proud to partner with the Business Disability Forum for a special panel discussion that took place on October 4th at 1pm (BST) to mark Dyslexia Awareness Week (2nd – 8th October). In “Celebrating the Diversity of Dyslexic Minds”, attendees heard from panellists representing a range of professions, roles and backgrounds about their unique strengths and experiences of dyslexia within the workplace. Chaired by Helen Musgrove, Director of Psychological Consulting at Lexxic and Co-Chaired by Lucy Ruck, Taskforce Manager at Business Disability Forum, the discussion exploredwhat employers can do to support and empower dyslexic employees.
To mark the arrival of Dyspraxia Week (9th – 15th October), Lexxic will be hosting Dyspraxia (DCD): Support for Parents & Carers, a free webinar on October 11th at 12pm. This event will focus on parents and carers of dyspraxic individuals, and more specifically supporting neurodivergent children, linking to Dyspraxia Week’s 2023 theme of “Community and Connectedness – the experiences of dyspraxic people and parents/carers”. In this event, one of Lexxic’s expert business psychologists will explore what dyspraxia is, neurodifferences in children and the challenges they face, support options available including assessments for dyspraxia, and more. There will be time for a Q&A session at the end.
Rounding out October and ADHD Awareness Month, Lexxic will be hosting a second panel discussion in partnership with the Business Disability Forum on “Challenging Misconceptions and Embracing ADHD in the Workplace”. On Tuesday 24th at 12pm, attendees will hear Helen Musgrove, Adrian Ward, Head of Business Partnerships at Business Disability Forum (BDF), and five fantastic panellists celebrate the unique strengths and talents of individuals with ADHD, whilst discussing and challenging common misconceptions. The panellists from a range of professions, roles and backgrounds will also draw on their lived experiences with ADHD.
