A bite-sized online learning opportunity presented by NeuroWild where you can discover the benefits of Neurodiversity-Affirming Practice.
As Paediatric Allied Health Professionals, we want to foster an environment of authenticity and inclusion, but how can we make steps today to implement Neurodiversity-Affirming Practice within our services?
Em Mainey, Autistic Speech Pathologist with ADHD, Mum to three neurodivergent kids, Illustrator, and the face behind the social media accounts, NeuroWild, shares how you can bring Neurodiversity-Affirming Practice into your clinic.
During this 1 hour and 20-minute workshop replay, you will:
- Gain practical strategies and resources to adapt your approach when working with neurodivergent clients toward non-judgmental, person-centred practice and to align with lived neurodivergent experiences.
- Obtain an understanding of neuro-affirming terminology and how to use it through a strengths-based lens in your interactions and documentation with neurodivergent clients and their families.
- Consider ways to provide a neuro-affirming approach to services whilst operating alongside and with other services and organisations such as education and the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).
- Grow your personal and professional skill set for creating neurodiversity-affirming therapy services.
You will also have access to two valuable resources – the Neurodiversity-Affirming Practice Checklist and a Collection of NeuroWild Illustrations.
