Quote from Shane Dangar - ( Young Person with lived experience of growing up with neurodiversity):

“I would like to add to the record that young people can gain labels like autism ADHD and others and that this can be a double-edged sword because although  for many the knowledge of their individual difference can be truly empowering,  those labels can lead people in that young person’s ecosystem to assume there are "correct" ways to work with that person. Its important to remember that all young people Special Educational Needs or not are individuals and what works for one may not work for another.” 




Professor John Gottman's research has shown that an Emotion Coaching parenting style can influence a child's emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand and control  our emotions, as well as being able to communicate with others about feelings. Children with good emotional intelligence  have better emotional, social and physical functioning, as well as fewer behavioural difficulties.
