About the Event
This webinar addresses a number of critical issues which highlight why the voices of neurodivergent victim-survivors of gender-based violence often go unheard. Matters impacting on neurodivergent individuals generally can be seen to be different in many ways to those impacting on the predominant neurotype. The presentation comes from an insider perspective, as Dr Ridout is a neurodivergent victim-survivor of gender-based violence. It highlights pertinent aspects, such as disclosure, agency and inclusion, in relation to neurodivergent survivors more generally and weaves throughout the presentation some concerns that have impacted her recovery pathway.
Dr Susy Ridout joined Oxford Brookes University as an Associate Lecturer in the School of Architecture, Faculty of Technology, Design and the Environment in September 2019. She has spent over a decade supporting and tutoring neurodivergent and disabled students. Central to her work are the identification of communication preferences and methods to locate neurodivergent voices and those of victim-survivors to the fore in research, services and debate. Through a wide range of publications and practice, Susy has brought insider expertise to her work on Autism and Mental well-being in Higher Education and Neurodiversity, Autism and Recovery from Sexual Violence.
