If you are unable to attend, you can still register and we’ll send you a link to the recording of the workshop which you can watch on your own time.

Neurodivergence is a non-medical umbrella description of people with variation in their mental functions and is common in today’s vocabulary. Neurodiverse conditions include autism, dyspraxia, dyslexia, dyscalculia and ADHD, among others. You may hear people refer to neurodiverse and neurotypical. In this workshop we will focus on Autism and ADHD. This workshop will assist parents, caregivers and/or providers with deepening their perspective-taking, while providing evidence-based approaches to behavioral strategies, support techniques, instructional approaches, and maximizing the environment. Simple positive reinforcement methods and techniques will be explored, as well as best adaptational practices for students who exhibit these characteristics. In this workshop, participants will:

• Deepen perspective-taking on neurodiversity
• Understand characteristics of children and youth with disabilities: ADHD and ASD
• Identify strategies for instructing and learning given ADHD and Autism/neurodiversity
• Apply learning to home and/or school scenarios

Presenter:
• Dr. Jacqui Kelleher – Executive Director of Vermont Family Network. Dr. Kelleher has a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology and will impart wisdom from her training and 20+ years’ experience working with parents and educators with respect to the psychology of development, teaching and learning for those with disabilities. She is also the parent of four now adult children who collectively experience autism, ADHD, depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder.
