In this 2-part special, returning guest Mica Jayne Coleman Jones, discusses celebrating neurodiversity and how we can move to the idea of neuroharmony.
In episode 2, Mica talks about her own son and her parenting experiences with him. She also discusses neurodiversity in school and how a one-size-fits-all approach isn't helpful when thinking about meeting individual needs.
Mica shares her personal experiences of autism and ADHD and she reflects on how to recognise potential triggers and suggests possible strategies to divert behaviours.
