ITAKOM (It takes all kinds of minds)
We’re delighted to be partnering with the ITAKOM (It Takes All Kinds of Minds) Neurodiversity Conference. ITAKOM is an international conference entirely focused on the far-reaching concept of neurodiversity, bringing together different perspectives, so we can better understand neurodiversity, and create a neurodiversity-affirmative world. This event is for anyone who believes in a society that embraces the differences between people. These differences are apparent in diagnoses like Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Tourette
Syndrome and many others.
Over 50 speakers will include experts on neurodiversity in the workplace, neuroscientists and nutritionists; campaigners, clinicians, parents.
All of them will be providing insights into how to better understand our differences, capture the richness of neurodiversity, and provide effective support where it is needed.
The keynote lecture is called "For the sake of Unusualness, My Life with Tourette Syndrome"
It will be delivered by “Mr Tourette”, Pelle Sandstrak - a truly inspirational and renowned international speaker on the subject of Tourette syndrome.
This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to hear and understand more about living with Tourette syndrome.
