The Neurodiversity Movement: A Social Worker’s Curiosity about Adult ADHD
There are a wide range of differences in the connection between our brains and bodies, known as our neurology. There is no “normal” way for our neurology to be expressed. This is neurodiversity. This webinar will introduce the guiding concepts of the Neurodiversity Movement, from the perspective of a Registered Social Worker with late-diagnosed ADHD.  We will look at Adult ADHD beyond the DSM criteria, and how neurodivergent identities connect to neuroscience and the disability rights movement.  We will then explore tools, tips. and takeaways to support Registered Social Workers in their work with the Adult ADHDers of the neurodivergent community. 

This Webinar is FREE for Ontario Registered Social Workers (RSW), Registered Social Service Workers (RSSW) and Students of Social Work and Social Service Work Programs. Please note: If you are not an RSW, RSSW or student of these programs in Ontario, you may still attend but will be charged a nominal fee of $40.

When ASL interpretation is required, please indicate the preference in the registration form. The incorporation of ASL interpreters will depend on availability.
