Supporting Neurodivergent TCKs

This workshop will deepen understanding of the unique experiences and challenges faced by TCKs who are neurodivergent, such as those with autism, ADHD, dyslexia, and other neurotypes. Through discussions and practical activities, attendees will gain valuable insights into strategies for creating inclusive environments, addressing sensory needs, and promoting neurodivergent-friendly approaches to education and social interactions.

Parents and caregivers will leave equipped with practical tools and resources to support neurodivergent TCKs in their journey towards positive growth, self-acceptance, and a sense of belonging. Our workshop leaders have personal investment and insights into these communities.

Tanya is an Autistic Adult TCK with 18 years’ experience working with international families, and Jacquie is a Clinical Mental Health Counselor and parent to a CCK with an Intellectual Disability. Both are excited to use their professional training and personally gained insights to help others thrive. Together, let's create a community that embraces and empowers all TCKs.
