Understanding Neurodiversity

Neurodiversity refers to the variation in the human brain regarding sociability, learning, attention, mood, and other mental functions. It's a perspective that brain differences are just that: differences, not deficits.

In "Parenting Neurodiverse Children," we embrace the diversity of these brain makeups. We focus on strategies that appreciate and support these differences, creating a nurturing environment for every child to thrive.
