Lexxic, a leading neurodiversity consultancy dedicated to empowering neurodiversity in the workplace, is thrilled to announce a series of engaging and free events and panel discussions throughout October, aligning with significant awareness dates throughout the month.
Lexxic proudly collaborates with the Business Disability Forum to present a special panel discussion that took place on October 4th at 1pm (BST) to commemorate Dyslexia Awareness Week (2nd – 8th October). In an enlightening session titled “Celebrating the Diversity of Dyslexic Minds,” attendees had the opportunity to hear from a diverse group of panelists representing various professions, roles, and backgrounds, sharing their unique strengths and experiences of dyslexia within the workplace. Chaired by Helen Musgrove, Director of Psychological Consulting at Lexxic, and Co-Chaired by Lucy Ruck, Taskforce Manager at Business Disability Forum, the discussion delved into what employers can do to support and empower dyslexic employees.
To honor Dyspraxia Week (9th – 15th October), Lexxic hosted “Dyspraxia (DCD): Support for Parents & Carers,” a free webinar held on October 11th at 12pm. This event focused on parents and caregivers of dyspraxic individuals, with a specific emphasis on supporting neurodivergent children, aligning with Dyspraxia Week’s 2023 theme of “Community and Connectedness – the experiences of dyspraxic people and parents/carers.” During this event, one of Lexxic’s expert business psychologists explored dyspraxia, neurodifferences in children, the challenges they face, available support options, including assessments for dyspraxia, and more. The event also included a Q&A session for participants to ask questions and seek guidance.
Wrapping up October and coinciding with ADHD Awareness Month, Lexxic will host a second panel discussion in collaboration with the Business Disability Forum titled “Challenging Misconceptions and Embracing ADHD in the Workplace.” Taking place on Tuesday, October 24th at 12pm, attendees will have the opportunity to hear from Helen Musgrove, Adrian Ward, Head of Business Partnerships at Business Disability Forum (BDF), and five outstanding panelists who will celebrate the unique strengths and talents of individuals with ADHD while discussing and challenging common misconceptions.
