All too often, the needs of neurodivergents are significantly misunderstood resulting in areas that either go un-addressed or sometimes even worse are addressed from the wrong perspective (e.g., a behavioral approach). As an autistic OT, Kim will provide a fresh view on a few of these common areas including sensory experiences, self-understanding, communication and social participation. Expand the way you understand the challenges your clients may have in one or more of these areas; this knowledge in turn will empower you to provide more meaningful and targeted supports (and dare we say—serve as the most effective, kindest ‘behavior support’ available).
