ACS sign up to Neurodiversity Week May 13-17
All four ACS campuses have signed up to a new initiative - the Neurodiversity Pledge. The Neurodiversity Pledge is the brainchild of sixteen-year-old student Siena Castellon who won a BBC 2018 Teen Hero award for her work raising awareness of neurodiversity and empowering neurodivergent students around the world.
ACS is only one of dozens of schools worldwide who are introducing activities that raise awareness of neurodiversity and attempt to challenge and change entrenched perceptions of autism and learning differences in order to reduce the stigma, myths and misconceptions associated with these conditions. Events for Neurodiversity week will take place at each campus. Details to follow.
