What can we do as parents and service providers to be neuro diverse affirming?
Tune into today's episode where Tara's guest expert is Dr. Robert Jason Grant. He is a licensed professional counselor and a Registered Play Therapist supervisor in Springfield, Missouri. He specializes in working with children, adolescents, and families, including working with neuro divergent children, such as those diagnosed with Autism, ADHD, sensory differences, and learning disorders.
