Join Temple Grandin and see why she is so admired for her insight and practical approaches to helping children and young people.

Treating, counselling, supporting or parenting children and young people with neurodiversity challenges in a neurotypical world can be difficult enough during “normal” times. This period of uncertainty makes it even harder.  This webinar with Temple Grandin’s down-to-earth insights and advice, along with the opportunity to connect with fellow caregivers and helping professionals around the world, will provide much needed support and a breath of fresh air.

In this 2-hour webinar, Dr. Grandin will discuss her thoughts on the situation today – children returning or not returning to school, uncertain schedules and routines, parents at home or at work, anxieties of a second wave.

The webinar will be open to a live Q & A so that webinar attendees will have a chance to ask Dr. Grandin about specific experiences or challenges that they are facing. As always she will share her time-tested ideas and practical solutions about what can be done right now to help provide structure, safety, routines and responsibilities to help children and young people deal more successfully with today’s challenges.

Join Dr. Grandin in this 2-hour INTERACTIVE Live Webcast and ask Dr. Grandin questions via video/online chat LIVE in real time.
