Supporting the developmental needs of children with neurodiversity
February 23, 2022 - February 23, 2022
Neurodiversity is a term used to acknowledge the diversity in brain functioning associated with a range of developmental conditions and experiences.
This webinar will explore what the evidence says about how neurodiversity can affect children. It will outline how practitioners can adapt their work to support children with neurodiversity. The webinar will enable practitioners in a range of settings to recognise the effect of neurodiversity on children’s learning and social development and to understand the principles for support. Specifically, it will:
- Outline the three key areas of development affected by neurodiversity, and common signs of neurodiversity in different settings
- Take a deep dive into a key developmental area – self-regulation
- Provide practical strategies for supporting children with self-regulation difficulties, using specific clinical examples of working with children on the autism spectrum.
This webinar will be of interest to professionals working in child support, child protection and mental health services with children and families, especially counsellors and mental health practitioners.
This webinar will be facilitated by Jasmine B. MacDonald and builds on the CFCA paper: Supporting children with neurodiversity.
