This presentation focuses on neurodiversity in students and how professors can increase accessibility in their classrooms. It includes sections on different neurodiverse conditions and comorbidities, but focuses on autism and differences from neurotypical students. There are several “how to help” sections, including suggestions regarding communication, cognitive differences, and sensory issues, and also discusses specific situations like lectures, group work, and field work. Overall, this acts as a helpful resource for understanding how neurodiverse people can process stimuli differently, and a guide for using more inclusive techniques to allow everyone to succeed in the classroom. This PowerPoint accompanied a presentation at the University of Leeds, during the Higher Education Network Annual Meeting with Diversity in Geoscience, UK. The conference and workshops were centered around inclusion, diversity and equality in higher education.
