Neurodiversity and Inclusion Certificate

Neurodiversity and Inclusion Certificate Overview


he VT Higher Education Collaborative believes neurodiversity is not only amazing, it’s necessary. To that end, we wanted to revise our Autism program to equip professionals to support our learners with neurodiversity-affirming programming across the state and beyond.

This program highlights an awareness of differences vs. disorders, and empowering professionals to lead with autism advocacy and acceptance versus awareness. Most notably, this program teaches about autism, but the practices recommended are applicable for neurodivergent learners across many diagnoses (ADHD, dyslexia, NLD, and more). Completing this program yields a certificate stating that the professional has completed a course of study on Neurodiversity & Inclusion supports.
