Event details

Following on from a successful first event in December, the School of Mathematics and School of Physics and Astronomy are excited to announce the first meeting of 2023 of the Maths & Physics Neurodiversity Network (the peer support network).

The network is intended as an informal support group for students and staff across both schools who identify as neurodivergent (Autism Spectrum, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity, dyslexia, etc.), providing a friendly place to meet, enjoy cake and share stories and advice from individuals with shared experiences.

The meeting will take place 13:00-15:00 on Wednesday, 25th January, with tea, coffee and cakes in Room 4325C (James Clerk Maxwell Building) as a quiet space for discussion.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Charlotte Desvages (Mathematics) & Cip Pruteanu (Physics & Astronomy)
