Join Kat Singer, MSW, RSW, a therapist in private practice in Ontario, for an engaging exploration of the neurodiversity paradigm and its applications in queer healthcare. This interactive workshop will introduce and expand on the deﬁnition of neurodiversity (the inﬁnite variation in neurocognitive functioning within our species), highlight the connection between neurodivergence and sexual & gender minority identities, and endorse a non-pathologizing approach to various neurological conditions. Participants will learn about common experiences of neurodivergent adults in healthcare settings, and discover how practitioner engagement with neurodiversity culture can beneﬁt their clients.
