NeuroThrive is our New Parents Support Group for Neurodiverse families Launching in February 2024
We are delighted to share with you the heartfelt news of the launch of our new initiative – a Parents Support Group designed exclusively for those caring for neurodiverse children and teens.
At NeuroThrive, we recognize the importance of building a strong support system for parents navigating the unique challenges and joys of raising neurodivergent children. Our new support group is a testament to our commitment to fostering a community of understanding, compassion, and shared experiences.
Understanding Neurodiversity in Children and Teens
Neurodiversity extends beyond the workplace; it encompasses every facet of our lives, including our families. Neurodiverse children and teens may experience a range of conditions, such as autism, ADHD, and other neurological differences. Our support group aims to create a safe and welcoming space for parents to connect, share, and learn from each other as they navigate the intricacies of raising neurodivergent children.
Why a Parents Support Group?
Raising a neurodiverse child can present unique challenges, from accessing the right resources to understanding and supporting their individual needs. This support group provides a platform for parents to come together, share their stories, seek advice, and form lasting connections with others who can relate to their journey. It's a place to celebrate victories, discuss concerns, and exchange valuable insights in a judgment-free environment.
What the Support Group Offers:
At NeuroThrive our Parents Support Group will offer a range of workshops to support parents and professionals who are supporting young people who are neurodiverse, including:
Expert-led Workshops: Information and education on neurodiversity such as Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia and more.
Practical Tips and strategies on how to help your child with learning, behaviour, communication and social skills.
Emotional Support and guidance on how to cope with stress, anxiety and isolation.
Monthly Parent Peer Support Sessions: Opportunities for parents to connect in a relaxed and friendly environment, fostering a sense of community and understanding. Share experiences since attending the NeuroThrive workshop and support one another to feel less alone.
Workbook: A specially written workbook to purchase to add to the workshops which includes a collection of tools to try out, book list and online resources tailored to the specific needs of parents raising neurodivergent children.
Guidance on pathways for support and services for Parents and their children.
