Neurodivergent Skill Up: Supporting Children and Youth

Neurodivergence Series - Children and Youth Panel

This panel presentation from November 2022 focused on supporting neurodivergent children and youth. Tie Resendiz, Rev. Sierra-Marie Gerfao, April Rosario, and Meredith Plummer joined us. Between them they have extensive experience across many kinds of neurodivergence and decades of experience with neurodivergent children and youth inside and outside UU congregations.

To get the most out of this session, we recommend watching at least one of the first three sessions and reading the recommended 101 document.

Please find the talk and Q&A session recording on the UUMA storefront. Your purchase will directly support the continuation of this series.
