Every neurodivergent student should be able to get the education they need. Many neurodivergent students are being failed and denied the most basic support, or adjustments at school.

I would like the Government to pass into law that all staff in educational settings must be trained on learning disabilities and autism (ASD). There are already requirements for this for health and social care staff.
The Oliver McGowan Mandatory Training on Learning Disability and Autism is the Government’s recommended and preferred training package for health and social care staff. The training is available and has been formally evaluated. It has received funding from the Government and could easily be adapted to meet the needs of staff based in educational settings.
