This is us - warts and all - with 5 minutes prep.

Neurodiversity Leader

As a practice we are committed to person centred care. At the heart of this is respect and acceptance of all people, including their differences. We strongly support the work being done by neurodivergent people to ensure that their human rights are upheld in the therapeutic space.

As therapists, many of us trained under models of care where the neurodivergent child was taught to pretend to be otherwise as a way of achieving their clinical goals, which were often to make the child appear to be “less different”. We know that language needs to change to ensure that acceptance becomes normalised. And we know that this is a big, but important change to the treatment of neurodivergent children across the globe. We are committed to being part of this change.

The position of Neurodiversity Leader is an ongoing leadership role within the team. The role includes a paediatric clinical caseload with a time allowance for the ND Leader tasks. Either an Occupational Therapist or a Speech Pathologist will be considered.
