Meet the speakers

Caragh is a former Olympic rower who uses her experiences of overcoming adversity as an Autistic athlete to help athletes, their coaches and managers to reach a mutually beneficial understanding and working methodology and ultimately maximise athlete and team performance and wellbeing.

She founded Neurodiverse Sport CIC in response to the current lack of understanding and support available for neurodivergent athletes, and intends it to be a platform for support, education, and advocacy.

It is Caragh’s belief that no athlete should feel misunderstood, isolated or unable to reach their full potential because they do not conform to neurotypical standards of behaviour and communication.
