'Overcoming barriers to co-production with children and adults with Neurodevelopmental disabilities workshop'
This half-day workshop will follow the Neurodevelopmental Disorders Annual Seminar (NDAS). Many researchers feel unprepared to co-design research with people with neurodevelopmental disabilities, while still believing in the value of co-production. This workshop will aim to address this gap, by giving researchers an overview of the main challenges of co-production and how to overcome them.

Speakers include: Laura Crane, Sarah O'Brien, and speakers with lived experience: Emma Pauley
