Ep 128: Neurodiversity Behavioural Strategies

1 in 5 children are described as neurodivergent; affecting the way they experience, understand, and interact with the world. I’ll share the common characteristics neurodivergent children share – whether they present with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, or Dyslexia – and most importantly the best behavioural strategies to support them.

Here are the highlights:
