NAVIGATING THE NEUROVERSE - COURSE COVER.png

"The Navigating the Neuroverse Course specifically for Autism & ADHD was an absolute lifesaver. I was waiting for a diagnosis for my daughter and meanwhile the school was providing minimal support for her. The course gave me so many useful tools to help my daughter with her challenges and to help me to understand her needs. I don't feel like I am failing as a Mother anymore. I realise I just didn't have the right tools for her which I do now and I am so grateful to The Bright Centre."

COURSE OVERVIEW

 

What does the term Neurodivergence and Neurodiversity mean?

 

Neurodivergence is the term for when an individuals brain processes, learns, and/or behaves differently from what is considered as “typical”. Examples of Neurodivergency include Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), dyslexia, dyspraxia, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), sensory processing disorders, social anxiety, Tourette’s syndrome.

 

Neurodiversity was a term coined in the 1990s by journalist Harvey Blume and an Autism advocate and sociologist diagnosed with what was previously known as Asperger Syndrome, Judy Singer. It refers to a natural variation in the ‘kinds’ of brains in terms of development and that what is natural is beneficial. The Neurodiversity movement encourages inclusion and respect for everyone and encourages neurodiverse individuals to be seen for their strengths.

 

 

Who is this course for?

 

This course is for parents with Neurodivergent children (suspected or diagnosed), adults who suspect they are Neurodivergent, adults diagnosed with a Neurodivergency or family/friends/carers who want to better understand the mind of a Neurodivergent person.

 

Why should you do this course?

 

The current wait time for a diagnosis is from 18 months with the Government and around 6 months through private medical. Even after receiving the diagnosis the resources for support may not be readily available and can lead to you feeling lost and unsure of the right steps to take. This course enables you to take positive action and gain support today.

 

This course will help you to;

 

  • Understand Neurodivergency

  • Understand your own needs

  • Understand the needs of your children, family member or friend

  • Support you whilst you are waiting for a diagnosis

  • Support you if you have received a diagnosis and are confused with what next step to take

  • Learn tools to implement immediately to support your needs or the needs of your loved one

 

I am a Neurodiversity advocate and take a strength-based approach to all neuro types to help individuals not just survive in this world but thrive. I will help you on this journey of understanding and acceptance. I will support you in uncovering the strengths and advantages of Neurodivergency whilst recognising the challenges but not giving into the view that being Neurodivergent is an illness or a dysfunction that needs to be ‘fixed’.
