A course for those Parent Carers interested in issues around ADHD and Autism, with a focus on the more positive aspects of these conditions. It is particularly useful for parents whose child is about to or currently going through assessment for ADHD or Autism, or those who have a diagnosis and wish to empower their child to feel more comfortable and confident about the condition and be able to speak to others about it.
This session introduces some of the more neglected positive aspects and benefits of neurodiversity, challenging the idea that it should always be seen in a negative light. We will look at some role models and share thoughts on some of the strengths we see in ourselves and our children. The course is led by professional trainers, who are themselves neurodivergent as well as being Parent Carers with neurodiverse children.

Because we know a lot about the challenges and we provide support in other ways such as our training courses and peer support, however, we noticed there was nothing that actively celebrated neurodiversity, seeing it from a different angle which can help promote acceptance and resilience.
