In this course we will work to view and understand neurodiversity from a lens of acceptance, examining it as a whole and legitimate culture rather than a series of neurotypical deficits needing remediation. By reviewing outside research such as The Double Empathy Problem and looking at our own practices, we will identify how to develop affirming practices of support rooted in mutual reciprocity with our clients. As a field, we have come to a pivotal point in how we approach our work and how we view the people we are serving. To ensure continued growth and progress through self-reflective practices we must become comfortable identifying and addressing unconscious ableism in our own perceptions, language, and work.
