Autistic/ADHD Girls Monthly Workshop & Support Group – Zoom
Topic: Why it’s good to be autistic: exploring benefits of neurodiversity
Neurodiversity is becoming a much more widely recognised term, reminding us that there are many different types of brains in the world. And yet those with recognised neurological conditions – such as autism, ADHD, dyslexia and dyspraxia – are often made to feel less than those perceived as ‘normal’. This session explores perspectives on difference and the benefits of thinking differently to the dominant neurotype, led by contributions from autistic girls and young women in our community.
Who can attend?: Parents/carers, young women and girls aged 11+, who are autistic or who have another recognised neurological type such as ADHD.
Submissions: The girls and young women are invited to present their thoughts, ideas and experiences in the format of their choice, for example as art work, photos, poems or Powerpoint. Younger girls are encouraged to submit their ideas for presentation by their parent/carer or a member of the PSC team. Girls aged 11+ are invited to present their own submissions on the night, if they wish to.
Date: Thursday 28th January
Time: 7pm – 8.30pm
Cost: £5 for Berkshire families. We have a small number of places available for non-Berkshire families at a cost of £10.
The workshop will be led by specialist parenting practitioners Ruth Moyse, Amy Plumer and Mary van der Merwe.
