PACDA-Career Coaching Strategies to Support Neurodivergent Clients
Time & Location
About the Event
The term neurodiversity was coined by autistic sociologist Judy Singer in 1998. It refers to the diversity of human minds, the infinite variation in neurocognitive functioning within our species. Being neurodivergent means having a brain that functions in ways that diverge significantly from the dominant societal standards of “normal.”
As career development professionals, we work with clients and students with a broad range of neurocognitive functioning. Some may have Autism Spectrum Disorder, Dysgraphia, Dyslexia, ADHD, and specific learning differences. We may find ourselves ill-prepared to provide career transition and job search coaching that benefits our neurodivergent clients.
Join us for this informative session to learn new tools to support your neurodivergent students and clients. Three subject matter professionals are ready to share their expertise with you.
