The neurodiversity movement is successfully shifting perceptions of deficit-based stereotypes, but what exactly does neurodiversity mean? Presenter Mary Klovance discusses Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism, Oppositional Defiant Disorder and Giftedness and details the ways these differences overlap and intersect in children, youth and adults.   

Explore this important topic to find out more about neurodiverse individuals and ways to support inclusion and acceptance. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the term neurodiversity 

  • Describe qualities of neurodiversity 

  • Identify different types of neurodiversity

(Includes time for Q& A)
The world is very different than when we were born, and parents these days carry a heavy load. Sometimes, the weight of raising a child can be overwhelming. What do buzzwords like "self care" mean anyway? Take more bubble baths? Exercise more? Meditate? That just feels like more pressure - and you might want to do less, not more. 
Kirsten Mueller has been a social worker and therapist, working with families for over 25 years. She has also raised two young adults and experienced her own share of challenging family moments. Come to learn more about mindful self-compassion, how its three components have been useful for Kirsten, and ways you can apply it in your own busy life.
