Given the high prevalence of ADHD and Autism within the LGBTQ+ population, there is a need to understand how these identities intersect. This workshop will provide participants with an introduction to the neurodiversity paradigm and neuroqueer theory. By providing an alternative to the medical model of understanding ADHD and Autism, this workshop will provide an avenue for considering ADHD and autism as social identities which can be positively integrated into a person’s identity. This workshop will review practices families can incorporate to affirm the integration of neuroqueer identities. Furthermore, this workshop will highlight particular stressors neuroqueer children and youth experience and provide strategies for supporting common issues such as: sensory sensitivities, alexithymia and interoception issues.
