What Every Mum Needs to Hear from Top Autism Expert

Biggest guest I've ever interviewed as I nervously welcome Professor Tony Atwood, a true pioneer in the field of Autism, for an intimate and revealing conversation about the complexities of understanding and diagnosing neurodiversity in children, with a particular emphasis on the often-overlooked experience by those who internalise rather than externalise (often experienced by girls and women).

Tony shares his unparalleled expertise on how professionals can become more attuned to the subtle signs of neurodiversity that may be masked or internalised, ensuring that no child slips through the cracks. We delve into the critical importance of thorough preparation and documentation in achieving a successful assessment, and explore potential groundbreaking changes to the DSM criteria that could revolutionise the way we diagnose and support neurodivergent individuals.

Don't miss this rare opportunity to gain invaluable insights from Tony's unique dual perspective as both a seasoned clinician and a compassionate parent. This promises to be a conversation that will leave you informed, empowered, and inspired to create a more inclusive and understanding world for all children.

I highly recommend all Dr Tony Attwood's courses - he runs Attwood and Garnett Events. Dr Michelle Garnett was unfortunately unwell the day of the interview and she is the second half of this incredible educational company.
