Neurodiversity and Inclusion Initiative

The Kildare Children & Young People’s Services Committee (CYPSC) and Sláintecare Healthy Communities Programme have funded an inter-agency neurodiversity and inclusion initiative in Co. Kildare.  My role within the project so far has been to:

  • Conduct preliminary consultations with service providers to envision scope and be led by their goals and needs.
  • Provide a training programme to equip professionals with skills to enable/facilitate the inclusion of Neurodiverse children and their families into the existing programmes; 
  • Provide support and training to parents of Neurodiverse children who attend these services;
  • Provide occupational therapy to a selection of Neurodivergent children attending the services.

I have delivered the programme in community Family Resource Centres.
