Mental Health of Neurodiverse
Adolescents & Teens
in a School Setting
This talk explores the concept of Neurodiversity and how it relates to mental health support in a school setting. We will focus on the often invisible social communication challenges indicative of differences such as ADHD and Autism, and discuss how mental health support for adolescents and teens often differs from traditional approaches. We will also discuss what we can do to support mental health within the school environment. This talk is ideal for educators, school administrators, and schools nurses looking to better support the mental health of their students.
As with most of our neurodiversity talks, this talk can also be delivered as a parents workshop as a way for schools/organisations to support parents in developing a better a understanding of their child's strengths and needs.
