About the event

The journey for all neurodiverse families is unique, but by sharing our stories and expertise, we hope to help others know they are not alone!

 

Please join us for a panel discussion which will explore how parents, guardians and carers can support children at different stages in their life.

We will explore topics such as:

  • Being inclusive of neurodiverse children

  • Understanding potential challenges and barriers in education

  • Diagnosis and navigating the healthcare system

  • Talking to teachers and clinicians

  • Why neurodiverse parenting maybe different

  • Acceptance and advocacy

 

As this is a panel discussion, there will be lots of time for questions and interaction with you!
