Jonathan Fielding

Staff Engineer at Spendesk, Speaker about hidden disabilities and web

Conferences have been key in discussing inclusion and diversity, yet there's a gap in understanding hidden disabilities. This talk aims to address this, focusing on neurodiversity, including ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and Dyscalculia.

I'll share my experiences discovering my dyslexia, dyspraxia, and autism to foster empathy and understanding. We'll explore practical strategies for creating inclusive environments for those with hidden disabilities.

This session will provide insights for better allyship, management, and support, embracing neurodiversity's strengths and perspectives. Join this journey towards a more inclusive future.
