A talk called The Science of ADHD: Navigating Neurodiversity in a Neurotypical World is coming to Komedia Bath on 12 January 2023 designed to give the audience an increased awareness and understanding of an ADHD brain. It will include advice and tips on how to navigate a neurotypical world as a neurodivergent person.

This talk will also highlight how society is demanding change. People are increasingly recognising and accepting neurodiversity and self-defining as neurodivergent. Surely, it’s time for the world to alter neurotypical societal standards as they are fast becoming outdated.

The talk is being given by Dr James Brown, a biomedical scientist and science communicator. James was diagnosed with ADHD in 2021, and subsequently co-founded the registered UK charity ADHDadultUK, the evidence-based online ADHD magazine and The ADHD Adults podcast.

James also coaches adults with ADHD and provides institutional training on ADHD and neurodivergent conditions. Alongside this, James work as Communications Director for Psychiatry-UK, the countries leading adult ADHD service.

“Understanding what ADHD really is, why people with ADHD have the behaviours they do and allowing people to understand how they can help loved ones who have ADHD is a hugely powerful tool in fighting decades of misinformation and stigma around ADHD.

“Whilst actual rates of ADHD haven’t changed over time, more children (and adults) are now being diagnosed as public awareness and acceptance by psychiatrists means that getting a diagnosis and support that comes with it is now happening more often.”

Doors 6.45pm, talk starts 7.30pm. For more information and to book tickets, go to
