Neurological variations are a vital part of humanity, as much as variations in size, shape, skin color and personality. None of us has the right (or the wisdom) to try and improve upon our species by deciding which characteristics to keep and which to discard. Every person is valuable.
In today’s episode we welcome Emilie Vogas, M.Ed and Board Certified Behavioral Analyst, to discuss parenting neurodiverse children, whether they are on the autism spectrum, have Downs syndrome, dyslexia, ADHD or any of a wide range of normally occurring differences.
The most important take away is that neurodiversity is NOT an illness to be “cured.” All children, neurotypical and neurodiverse alike, speak and behave in a sort of “code” and it’s up to parents to learn to translate what it is their kids are trying to communicate. We’ll give you tips and inspiration on improving your translation skills, what that looks and sounds like, and we offer a glimpse of a future where all children are valued for their unique gifts and given appropriate support IF they need it.
