In this first-ever meeting of the Accessible Dartmouth Initiative Podcast Group, we’ll dive into informal, semi-structured discussions of what neurodiversity is and how we can support our neurodiverse students. The instructions for taking part in this podcast group are below. While we highly encourage you to attend all 3 sessions, this is not a requirement. This is designed to work as a series or as individual events. Please email Carly Lesoski (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
Read the descriptions of the following podcast episodes. Choose at least 1 episode and listen to and/or read the transcript. We highly recommend that you take notes on points that are salient and interesting to you, including major takeaways and questions you might have. Consider using the guiding questions below to help with your notetaking.
The estimated time commitment for this session is 2 hours (1 hour of preparation and 1 hour of discussion during the live session.)
- How do the podcasters define and frame neurodiversity/neurodivergence?
- List strategies the podcasters suggest for addressing neurodiversity/neurodivergence. Note how these strategies do (not) work in your context.
- Bring questions you would like to discuss with the group.
