Unfortunately, there is a shortage of practitioners who use truly Neurodiversity-affirming approaches.

 

Finding a neurodiversity-affirming professional can make all the difference to an Autistic child and their family. You might be the first person to ever truly validate your client as their Autistic self and support them on their journey to self-discovery, self-acceptance, and self-care.

 

Our post-course directory is designed to connect potential clients with neuro-affirming practitioners like yourself.

Your journey with us doesn’t end there! 

 

Our views on the Autistic experience evolve constantly, which is why it is vital that we continue to listen and learn from the Autistic community.
