It Is Not That Simple: Neurodivergent Intersectionality Microtalks


Whilst the conversations around neurodivergent topics have progressed significantly in the last few years, there have been far too few discussions on the effect of intersectionalities with neurodivergences. For some, a single neurodivergence is their major and/or only identity. However, for many being neurodivergent is just one of their many struggles. Hear from several experienced game developers of different backgrounds and disciplines discuss their experiences as intersectional and neurodivergent creators, and the impact this has on their work and personal lives. Learn more about their unique challenges, joys, and accommodations whilst gaining an understanding of why it is not just "people being difficult".
