NDeavour Meeting Space

Who are NDeavour?

We are a group of neurodivergent (ND) therapists including ADHDers, autistics, dyspraxics and dyslexics. We are proud of our unique brains and thinking styles.

What is the Meeting Space?

  • The NDeavour meeting space is a remote meeting that occurs on the first Thursday of the month at 6 pm.
  • The meeting is for ND therapists to connect with each other. You must also be a member of the BABCP neurodiversity SIG.
  • The group recognises self-diagnosis as valid. Therefore, if you self-identify as ND, you are welcome to attend.

What are the aims of the group?

  • To have a space to socialise, unmask and be our true authentic selves 
  • To discuss our experiences regarding workplace, accommodations, and offer support to each other
  • To discuss the research regarding ND and how we can share our unique expertise with the wider therapeutic community and with BABCP members
  • To discuss our special interests
  • The meeting is not a supervision or therapy group
  • The meeting will respect group members' confidentiality. Many of us, choose not to disclose our ND in the workplace

All BABCP neurodiversity SIG members will receive invitations to NDeavour meetings, so sign up to the SIG today at the link below.
