Through October and Beyond: Lexxic’s Commitment to Neurodiversity Excellence

Lexxic, a leading neurodiversity consultancy dedicated to empowering neurodiversity in the workplace, is hosting a series of engaging and free events and panel discussions throughout October, aligning with key awareness dates during the month.

Lexxic proudly partnered with the Business Disability Forum for a special panel discussion that took place on October 4th at 1 pm (BST) to commemorate Dyslexia Awareness Week (2nd – 8th October). Titled “Celebrating the Diversity of Dyslexic Minds,” the discussion featured panelists representing diverse professions, roles, and backgrounds, sharing their unique strengths and experiences as dyslexic individuals in the workplace. The panel was chaired by Helen Musgrove, Director of Psychological Consulting at Lexxic, and co-chaired by Lucy Ruck, Taskforce Manager at Business Disability Forum. The conversation delved into strategies for employers to support and empower dyslexic employees.

In honor of Dyspraxia Week (9th – 15th October), Lexxic hosted “Dyspraxia (DCD): Support for Parents & Carers,” a free webinar on October 11th at 12 pm. This event was specifically designed for parents and carers of dyspraxic individuals, focusing on supporting neurodivergent children. The webinar aligned with Dyspraxia Week’s 2023 theme of “Community and Connectedness – the experiences of dyspraxic people and parents/carers.” An expert business psychologist from Lexxic explored dyspraxia, neurodifferences in children, the challenges they face, available support options including assessments for dyspraxia, and more. The event included a Q&A session.

To conclude October and commemorate ADHD Awareness Month, Lexxic hosted a second panel discussion in collaboration with the Business Disability Forum. Titled “Challenging Misconceptions and Embracing ADHD in the Workplace,” the event took place on Tuesday, October 24th, at 12 pm. Attendees heard from Helen Musgrove, Adrian Ward (Head of Business Partnerships at Business Disability Forum), and five outstanding panellists who celebrated the unique strengths and talents of individuals with ADHD while addressing and challenging common misconceptions. The panelists, hailing from diverse professions, roles, and backgrounds, drew on their lived experiences with ADHD.
