Families face long waiting lists everywhere desperate for genuine support and understanding.
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.
