ADHD & Autism Parent Workshop

November 19, 2023 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

Gather with other parents to get an insider look on neurodiversity (different ways of thinking and processing: autistic, ADHD, OCD, dyslexia/dysgraphia, Tourette’s, Down Syndrome), and find encouragement and practical helps for being a better parent to your neurodiverse children. During the first part of the presentation you will obtain a solid understanding of neurodiversity and the wonderful gifts that these individuals bring to the Church and wider community. Next, you will learn about what is being done at St. James to support and welcome neurodiversity. Most importantly, you will find insight and formation that will be specifically helpful to you as a parent. This is a great opportunity to be enriched and equipped by the wisdom of one who has researched and studied and has much to share from her own experiences as a coach, teacher, wife, and mother.

About the Speaker: Susan Miller is a Catholic convert and has been everything from an archaeologist to elementary teacher to NFP instructor. She and her husband Bart are both neurodivergent and homeschool their five neurodivergent (autistic, ADHD, dyslexic, OCD) kids. Because of this, she’s passionate about learning more about neurodiversity and sharing that with those around her.
