THAT Conference instructs the Executive Committee to put forward to the Joint Executive Council that the Joint Executive Council commission research into the effectiveness of current guidance and legislation into the identification and support of female learners with neurodiversity.

Conference asks that, as part of the research, specific attention is paid to behavioural problems and ‘informal exclusions’ in relation to these learners, and in particular individuals identifying as female who have been identified as having ASD/ASC, ADHD or show behaviours indicating a similar condition to be present, highlighting any trends that could be addressed.

Conference further asks that the results of this research be used to update policy in relation to the identification and support of female learners with behaviour-affecting neurodiversity.
