It is critical for children and parents to understand affirm and accept neurodivergence in themselves and in each other. This leads to greater self-awareness, self-acceptance, and overall well-being. Starting with more positive narratives and an honest and affirming discussion of strengths and needs, parents become better advocates for their children’s authentic growth and development in a way that is tailored to their unique strengths and challenges. Through this modelling, children learn to be strong self-advocates for creating equity for themselves in their environments.
