My Child's Different

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’.
