This AchieveAbility E-Journal uniquely celebrates the notion of neurodiversity, those of us
who are *neurodivergent and the collective community who are *neurodiverse. While
maintaining the research and editorial standards expected by more formal research-based
journals, this AchieveAbility E-Journal takes an inclusive editorial policy to encourage the
particular experience, original thinking and preferred communication styles, formats and
media of contributors.

The main aim of the Journal is to: To provide a forum for exchange and debate that informs
policy, strategy and practice on Neurodiversity within our society.
The e-journal is available via the AchieveAbility website https://www.achieveability.org.uk/
and contributors include: ACAS, Prospect UK, Katherine Kindersley, Dyslexia Scotland,
Charles Freeman, Disability Collaborative Network, Dr James Richard, AchieveAbility with
St Mungo’s, Diversity and Ability (DnA), DFN Charitable Foundation, Klaudia Matasovska
and Inclusion North. The key topics are: Policy and Good Practice, Strategy in the Creative
Industries, Inclusivity and Employment and Supported Access to Employment.
Throughout April we will be actively engaging with the neurodiverse community on social
media to provide a platform of discussion. In October 2020 we will aim to set up an event to
debate the ‘Neurodiversity within our society’ Journal philosophy – going forward.
