How you can support your neurodivergent child

Neurodiversity refers to the natural variation in the human brain and the different ways in which people think, learn and process information.  

In this podcast we talk with Bec. She is a mother and stepmother to three children and generously shares her parenting journey with us, including the challenges and valuable lessons she has learned from her neurodivergent son. 

In this episode you will learn:

  • Bec discussing what her son has taught her about neurodiversity [02:29]

  • Bec sharing the strategies the family uses at home to support her son and their everyday life [20:01]
  • Bec reflecting on her own parenting and what she has found most helpful [27:49]
