The importance of training and pathways for Neurodevelopmental conditions

Blandine French (Senior Research Fellow)
Despite affecting up to 12% of the population, neurodevelopmental conditions (such as Autism, ADHD, Dyspraxia, Tics disorder) are not part of the compulsory training for healthcare professionals which leads to a lot of stigmas and difficulties in accessing care. Understanding how to improve care pathways through education and evaluation of the wider risks associated with these conditions is key to improve not only care pathways but individuals and families wellbeing.

Dark Nudges in Decision-Making

Leonardo Cohen (Assistant Prof)
Next to the checkouts in shops you always see chocolate bars and chewing gum. Would you buy sweets if they were far away instead of conveniently close? Probably not as often. This is a behavioural nudge: small changes to the environment (putting the junk food nearby instead of hidden far away) to influence our decisions. Join me as I show you the many ways that our choices can be nudged, and let's fight together against evil dark nudges that makes us behave in ways that are not necessarily in our best interest.

Beyond Lectures: Understanding the Mental Health Needs of Students with ADHD

Eden Morley (Teaching Associate)
This presentation will delve into the complex interaction between neurodiversity, specifically Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and academic life in female students. We will explore the underlying cognitive and behavioral mechanisms associated with ADHD and their potential impact on academic success. The focus will be on identifying challenges and opportunities unique to female students with ADHD. Additionally, I will introduce strategies to improve academic performance and mental well-being for this population, sharing my ongoing initiatives at the University to support these students.
