In The Media
At Exceptional Individuals, we are passionate about promoting neurodiversity in the media, advocating and educating on the topic.
Neurodiversity in the media
At Exceptional Individuals, we advocate for rights and opportunities for neurodiverse people, and are a voice for education in the field of neurodiversity. We try to create change in the broader societal, legal, and political arenas in which our activities take place. We push for recognition and awareness of the growing neurodiversity movement as a whole.
We attempt to discuss neurodiversity in the media as much as we can, to achieve these means. In the past, we have featured on the BBC TV and Radio, London Live and more. By promoting our work, our opportunities, our events and our people, we try to increase the awareness of neurodiversity and create a positive message surrounding the topic of neurodiversity, fighting the stigma that may often be associated with some neurodiversities.
