“My Neurodiversity, my Superpower!”

In October, VIS celebrated Neurodiversity across its sections to raise awareness about the challenges and strengths of neurodiverse individuals.

Elementary School students had an exciting and interactive assembly where the main ideas of the topic were introduced through games and discussions. They also created Wonder Walls with curiosities about the word neurodiversity, researched to answer those questions, and then collaborated on projects to understand and respect that all brains work differently and this is what makes us unique.

In Middle School, students worked on different projects based on the stories of Famous Neurodiverse People. Grade 6 created a collaborative collage located in the Art room to inform about the talents of many famous neurodiverse individuals and inspire them. Grade 7 created eBooks describing the challenges and achievements of famous autistic, dyslexic, and ADHD people. Grade 8 students split into groups of songwriters, instrument players, singers, and others in order to create musical compositions that comprise their insights about neurodiversity.

In High School, grade 9 and 10 students participated in workshop sessions that encouraged empathy and respect towards neurodiverse individuals through role-play activities, discussions, and research tasks. Grade 11 and 12 students joined an assembly where neurodiversity was introduced and discussed with their homeroom teachers. This Month's journey would have not been possible without the support of teachers, LSEs, librarians, and everyone who daily strives to make our community a more inclusive place.
