This presentation introduces the concept of neurodivergent-affirming care as a pivotal approach in clinical settings, aiming to foster inclusivity, accessibility, and effectiveness in supporting neurodivergent individuals. By prioritizing understanding and respect for neurodivergent experiences, this framework moves beyond traditional care models to embrace a practice that recognizes the unique strengths and challenges of neurodivergent individuals. The session is designed to equip social work practitioners with the necessary insights and tools to adopt neurodivergent-affirming care within their practice.

Presenter: Brooke Garren, LCSW
