The LEANS project is based within the Salvesen Mindroom Research Centre at the University of Edinburgh.
Learning About Neurodiversity at School (LEANS) is a programme for mainstream primary schools to introduce pupils aged 8-11 years to the concept of neurodiversity, and how it impacts our experiences at school.
Developed by a neurodiverse team of researchers and educators, LEANS is a multi-session curriculum, with a mix of hands-on activities, storytelling and factual resources, introducing the concept of neurodiversity and how it is relevant to pupils’ schools and lives.
