The Neurodiversity movement is creating huge ripples of important change in the allied health world. Hooray! It’s long overdue!
It’s time to get everyone in your Allied Health team aligned with what a Neurodiversity Affirming approach looks like in practice. Practice Managers and administrators have such important front-line and behind-the-scenes roles. It’s deeply important for the whole team to be across Neurodiversity Affirming language, principles, processes and actions, to best support your neurodivergent clients and their carers.
If we haven’t met, HI! I’m Adina Levy. I’m an Autistic ADHDer speech therapist & professional educator from Australia. I’m utterly dedicated to supporting professionals, parents, teachers and educators how to support autistic children in affirming ways.
I am so heartened by Allied Health Professionals’ huge response to the ND movement and there are so many wonderful professionals like you who are making big changes in your practice already.
Together, we can keep heading in this direction! My goal is to guide you over the webinar to learn new ideas, and make plans to shift the way your whole business supports neurodivergent clients!

Why learn with me?
I’m an autistic ADHDer with over a decade’s experience working professionally with autistic & neurodivergent children, their families, and their support networks. I’ve been an educator in various settings for almost 20 years, and I’m absolutely dedicated to helping others learn, digest and take action on big concepts and ideas.
I make learning fun and engaging, and I blend lived experience, personal reflection, clinical experience and evidence-based practice (with a critical lens!)
More than 450 professionals have taken my online & in-person workshops and webinars to date! I hope you’ll join us!
Here’s what others have said about my Neurodiversity Affirming Practice training:
“I enjoyed it all. I love that you are encouraging us all to see things from a different and much more inclusive perspective. I particularly enjoyed the case studies and thinking about what neuroaffirming responses might be in these given situations”
“Thank you so much Adina, I always have so many ah huh moments and feel like my own thoughts and challenges are validated!“
“Adina was so positive with everyone and supportive of where they are at on their neuro-affirming journey.“
” I appreciate your approach – important to be critical of all approaches, but not every approach is bad (some parts may be, but some parts can be useful). Also appreciate that you recognise that this is a massive cultural shift for society – some of us will move quickly and others of us will need time.“
