Creating a Neurodivergent-Affirming Practice

April 3 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

This presentation uses client case reviews to help attendees understand how to create a neurodivergent-affirming practice.

Attendees will be able to ask consultation-type questions to build awareness and skills. They will learn practical tips to enhance their practice, especially related to cultural competence and psychopharmacology.

Hand-outs will be provided, as well as resources for further research/self-study for participants.

Learning outcomes include:

  • What neurodivergent-affirming care looks and feels like for patients/clients and our peer colleagues
  • Understanding neurodivergent-affirming care as a form of cultural competence
  • How to ensure both your clinical practice and private practice policies are neurodivergent-affirming (do’s and don’ts)
  • How to find a competent neurodivergent-affirming therapist, or clinical supervisor.

Please note that this is an intermediate level training. The attendee should already:

  • Have a basic knowledge of what neurodiversity is and common conditions encountered in private practice (ADHD across the lifespan, ASD, dyslexia, Aphantasia, etc.); and
  • See neurodivergent-affirming care as a form of cultural competence.
