Chris Cole our Learning Advisor worked with Library and Information Association of New Zealand Aotearoa (LIANZA) to hold three online workshops in September. The topic was 'Integrating Neurodiversity Into Your Library – Next Steps', and followed on from an earlier workshop, 'Introduction to neurodiversity'. Twenty people attended these facilitated workshops to increase their knowledge, develop resources and learn practical steps to become more neurodiverse friendly in their library practices. There was rich conversation and connections developed that will continue into the future. Contact us if you would like Chris to speak to your workplace about learning differences. firstname.lastname@example.org
