Neurodiversity Film

Throughout this year the pupils at Sciennes have shared their views about how they manage the school environment, the things that they find tricky and the things that help them to cope. We are very grateful to all the pupils who worked to make this film.

We hope that by watching it you get an insight into just how hard our young people work to navigate their way through each day – not just in school, but in our homes, in our clubs, on our football pitches.

There are many things we can do as adults and as children that can help someone else to feel understood, feel that they belong and just generally make their day a better one.

The next time you see a child displaying a behaviour that involves ‘running off, kicking off or switching off’, remember this is the sign that they cannot manage to process any more. Consider what you can do differently to reduce their load. Changing how you say something, adapting the environment or doing something differently could make a big difference to the child’s ability to manage.
