About the event
Parents of neurodivergent children often feel pressure to parent the way their friends or society say they should, according to neurotypical norms. Schools sometimes attempt to manage neurodivergent students according to traditional behavioral techniques. These techniques frequently don’t work for neurodivergent children and neurodivergent adults share they may even be inadvertently traumatizing.
Learn how to reset your approach with the neurodivergent children in your lives - including understanding energy regulation, supporting children’s goals, and understanding your role as a trusted adult steering a neurodivergent child through a neurotypical world. While Autism Level UP’s work focuses on autistic children, their messages are applicable across a range of neuro-uniqueness. If you’ve ever seen Amy and JÂcqûelyn speak, you know this is sure to be a highly engaging conversation!
About Autism Level UP!
Amy and JÂcqûelyn have joined forces to form Autism Level UP! Our philosophy is that through education, accessible resources, practical strategies and a commitment to consistently incorporating the experiences and perspectives of autistic people, we can support the leveling up of society when it comes to autism and neurodiversity.
Of course, our primary goal is to support autistic individuals, but the more we are able to spread real awareness and support others in moving from awareness to acceptance, acceptance to appreciation, appreciation to empowerment and from empowerment to activism, the more positive change we will see at those large institutional and societal levels that can greatly benefit the autistic community. So we do aim first and foremost to empower autistic individuals to navigate their world, but we also aim to make the world a more autism-friendly environment and the universe more accommodating to the neurodiverse - after all, it is a partnership an change should not rest solely on the shoulders of the autistic community.
