Community Workshop: Autism and ADHD in Children and Young People
Join Tara Kent for this community workshop that aims to educate and empower the parents and carers of children and young people, who have characteristics of both Autism and ADHD.
Areas the session will cover include: understanding the differences between the two neurodivergences as well as how they overlap, and impact each other, appreciating your child’s unique profile of things they might find easier or more challenging than others, strategies to help support your child, how to build your child's independence and create a supportive environment that helps them thrive, as well as strategies and insights for communicating your child's needs in various settings. Tara and the team she works with have also completed a lot of work and study understanding some of the primary characteristics of both Autism and ADHD and have developed a lot of complementary fact sheets and information about these.
While this session is primarily aimed at parents, family members and other supporters may also benefit from attending. Some young people may also wish to consider attending our sister workshop in September on “Autism & ADHD in Adulthood” along with a parent or caregiver.
