About the event

This course is meticulously crafted to facilitate a profound exploration of neurodivergence, aiming to deepen participants' comprehension of its multifaceted dimensions. Throughout the program, we will embark on a journey through the historical context of neurodivergence, critically examining obsolete methodologies and practices that have proven detrimental. Moreover, we will meticulously outline strategies for constructing sustainable support frameworks that foster inclusivity and empathy within our neurodivergent communities.

A central focus of our discourse will revolve around the pivotal role of accommodations in nurturing the well-being of neurodivergent individuals, elucidating how these supportive measures resonate universally, particularly benefiting those with a history of trauma. Delving into the dynamics of caregiver-child interactions, we will elucidate how the perspective of adults profoundly influences the developmental trajectories of neurodivergent children under their care.

Furthermore, we will engage in a comprehensive discussion surrounding contemporary terminologies endorsed within neurodiversity discourse, juxtaposed with outdated and potentially stigmatizing language. By delineating the significance of language evolution and the underlying rationale for such shifts, participants will gain nuanced insights into fostering respectful and affirming dialogues within our communities.
