How To Talk To Neurodivergent Children About Their Diagnosis

Parenting neurodivergent children is both a challenging and rewarding journey. One of the pivotal moments in this journey is discussing the diagnosis with the children themselves. As parents, how and when do you approach the conversation? And how do you help children understand their diagnosis and the interventions, while celebrating their strengths and uniqueness? We discuss with consultant developmental paediatrician Dr Rajini Sarvananthan, and Dr Choy Sook Kuen, a parent of a neurodivergent child and founder of Oasis Place.
