We are working with Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell to progress the idea of the Labour Party developing a Neurodiversity/Autism Manifesto and appointing a Shadow Minister for Neurodiversity. We are pleased to hear from John that Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn also supports this idea. Neurodiversity (ND) is the term that describes the fact that different people have different brain wiring (neurology).
'Neurodiversity' means that different people have different brain wiring. Unfortunately, those with a minority brain wiring - such as dyslexic, autistic and dyspraxic people - face discrimination at work and in wider society.
Janine will be presenting the draft Labour Party Autism and Neurodiversity Manifesto at this briefing event at Parliament hosted by John McDonnell MP. Other members of the steering group which put the manifesto together will be on hand to answer questions.
If you are a PCS member and would like to come on this course, please contact your branch or regional office.
Janine will be tutoring this two-day, Stage 1 Neurodiversity in the Workplace training course for PCS trade union reps and members.
Details to follow.
