In Season 4 we delve deeper into The Invisible Gift of neurodiversity from actors, to dancers, to entrepreneurs.
The Invisible Gift (TIG) Training is a new educational workshop designed to teach primary school children what neurodiversity is and what it means to be neurodiverse. Using their knowledge from The Invisible Gift Podcast, Andrew, along with fellow guest Paloma Forde, aim to help children feel inspired, rather than ‘ashamed’ of having a condition, which for so long has been referred to as a ‘disability’.
Each visit consists of a PowerPoint presentation to educate the students on what neurodiversity is, as well as an introduction to Andrew and Paloma. The second half of the visit involves fun, inclusive activities to get the children to think outside the box, and get an idea of what it’s like to have a brain which functions differently. One of these includes writing a sentence with there non – dominant hand, to understand and perceive dyslexia.
TIG Training is aiming to visit as many schools across the nation as we can – up to 40 schools within the next year.
Andrew and Paloma are very excited to see what TIG Training will accomplish, and how they can change people’s perception of neurodiversity!
