Late diagnosis of, and gender differences in, Neurodiversity

Late diagnosis of, and gender differences in, Neurodiversity

This IP Ability event will explore two key issues surrounding the diagnosis of neurodiversity:

  • Diagnosis later in life (eg mid-career); and
  • How the likelihood, timing and nature of a diagnosis can differ between genders.

Understanding these issues will not only inform the people who receive or seek diagnoses, but also help their allies – including employers and colleagues – to build a more inclusive and supportive environment for them.


Confirmed speakers include:

  • Rebecca Campbell (Mewburn Ellis) from the IP Ability committee
  • Roxy Lackschewitz-Martin, Policy Manager at Neurodiversity in Law, a society run by legal professionals and students to promote and support neurodiversity within the legal professions
  • Edward Rose from the UK IPO’s “iThink” support network, which promotes awareness and understanding of neurodiversity


This event is open to all UK-based IP professionals, including of course disabled and neurodiverse people and their allies. It doesn’t matter what type of organisation you work in, what role you play in it or what your career level.

Sign up here. If you would prefer not to use Eventbrite, please contact [email protected].


This event is free. So are all IP Inclusive’s resources. That said, they do need money to keep the show on the road, so if you enjoy the event please consider contributing to the 2021-22 fundraising campaign.
