About the event

Do you have a neurodivergent student or child who is underperforming  in school? Let’s help them get their light back! A happy and engaged  student is one who will take on challenges. In this positivity-focused  workshop, we will emphasize the many reasons neurodiverse students have  to celebrate their unique brain wiring. We will identify strategies for  building confidence, self-esteem, and self-efficacy by providing  opportunities for individuals to show and grow their strengths, learning  ways to tease apart the conceptual content goals from the challenges in  expression, and integrating strength-based strategies into everyday  life. There will be time for participants to ask questions specific to  their child.
