Group Facilitator:

“I combine my therapy skills with ten years of academic teaching to help A.C.C.E.P.T. group participants understand their neurodivergent operating systems and become fluent in translating their perceptions and experiences to neurotypical friends, family members, colleagues, and service providers, so they can experience greater authenticity and ease in their lives with the neurodiverse population to promote self-awareness, self-regulation, and improved executive function, attention, and time management.”

The A.C.C.E.P.T. Series for neurodivergent Adults provides unique spaces for ND people to meet, explore their identities, unpack myths about their brains and nervous systems, connect with other neurodivergent people, and build skills to navigate a neurotypical world.

The Series consists of three modules based on the three pillars of the A.C.C.E.P.T. Framework: Understanding, Communication, and Connection. Each module consists of a pre-recorded introduction to the module, four online sessions, a workbook with activities and resources, membership in an ACCEPT members-only Facebook group, and a six-month drop-in follow-up.
