Supporting Neurodivergent Youth

Understanding and Supporting Young People who are Neurodivergent

This free 3-hour workshop is for people who work with youth, parents and caregivers, and any interested members of the community.

The workshop will build the knowledge and skills of adults to support young people who have ‘diverse’ abilities and different experiences of the world (e.g. autism, ADHD, trauma, mental ill-health, sensory processing needs, FASD). It includes evidence-based information and strengths-based practices presented from the lived experience perspective.

Each workshop is the same and will be 2 hours in duration. The workshop will be presented in two formats, face-to-face in Katherine and online.

Katherine Workshops
All face-to-face workshops will be held at the Flinders Training Room, Katherine Hospital (opposite ED).

Online Workshops
All online workshops will be hosted using zoom. The online meeting details will be emailed to you after you register.
