My Child's Different

PRESENTED ON MAR 20, 2019
IN CAMBRIDGE @ VOL 19

Elaine Halligan is the London Director of The Parent Practice. In this presentation she shares the lessons learned from her struggle to unlock her son’s potential and explores the enabling role that parents can play in getting the best out of children who are seen as ‘different’ or ‘difficult’. The notion that our children may be shunned for being ‘different’ breaks our hearts, but there is plenty we can do to help such children develop into thriving, resilient adults.
