About the Theme
There is a beautiful, innate curiosity in the heart of hearts of everyone in the world- the curiosity to know more about the world where we live in, the curiosity to know more about the world inside us. The celestial diversity in our common humanity far supersedes the glow of our any other trait. However, not all of us get the chance to pursue where our curiosity takes us: Children with disabilities may not find themselves in an environment that is conducive to their unique curiosities and abilities.
They may be subjected to unequal treatment and exclusion from education standards suited to their needs. These challenges, compounded with an education system that may not always respect and value them with quality education, are concerning. Education for all must break all barriers: those outside in the world and those in the world inside us. Inclusive education should foster understanding, acceptance, collaboration and tolerance, and generate openness towards others, and towards their characteristics and diversity. Explore more in our webinar on Special Needs Education!
About the Guest Speaker
Ms Siena Castellon is an 18-year old neurodiversity advocate and author from Ireland who lives in the United Kingdom. She was recently inducted into the 2020 Class of Young Leaders for the Sustainable Development Goals by the UN Office of the Secretary General’s Envoy on Youth. She is neurodiverse; she is autistic, dyslexic, dyspraxic and has ADHD.
When she was 13, she discovered that online resources were focused on supporting the parents of children with special educational needs (SEN). Siena decided to address this by creating www.qlmentoring.com, a website that supports SEN students. Most recently, Siena launched Neurodiversity Celebration Week, an international campaign that aims to challenge negative perceptions and stereotypes about autism and learning differences by encouraging schools to flip the narrative from focusing on the challenges of being neurodivergent to focusing on strengths and talents. Siena is also the bestselling author of “The Spectrum Girl’s Survival Guide: How To Grow Up Awesome and Autistic.”
