Differences not Deficits:
Using a Strengths-Based Approach in Working with Neurodivergent Clients (Recorded)

Whether you have read emerging research on the topic, stumbled across trending videos on Tik Tok, or learned from listening to your clients, chances are that you’ve heard the term neurodiversity. But what is that exactly? This training will explore the current shift from conventional perspectives on neurodevelopmental diagnoses to the neurodiverse-affirming approach which looks at brain differences as naturally occurring and worthy of inclusion and recognition. 

We will primarily focus our discussion on the topic of autism, and we will discuss the research supporting this shift in how we view autism, the language we use, and how to work with and support autistic clients.
