Tip of the Week- Neurodiversity Celebration Week

March 18th-24th 2024 marks Neurodiversity Celebration Week. At Canavan Byrne, we are lucky to have an expert trainer, Ciara Watson, who recently completed a Master of Arts in Autism Research at Mary Immaculate College. As we celebrate Neurodiversity week, we are delighted to announce two new Neurodiversity related webinars, facilitated by Ciara. These webinars are designed for School Age Care Managers and Practitioners, and Parents/Guardians, and will provide both with some expert tips.

Understanding and Supporting My Neurodiverse Child at Home and School

  • This is a new webinar, scheduled for April 18th Ciara explores the diagnoses process and our health service, including the three pillars of our health service. She offers tips to support children with sensory differences and how to connect home and school, which is very important to support neurodiverse children.



Supporting Neurodiverse School Age Children

  • This webinar is ideal for school age care practitioners and managers. You will learn about the importance of the environment and the sensory system when supporting Neurodiverse children. This webinar is scheduled for April 11th



In addition, Ciara will present an In-Person training event: Understanding and Supporting Behaviours of Neurodiverse Children in Your Setting. This is a 3-hour event, in South Dublin Arts Centre, Tallaght, on April 6th. Learn about the 4 different functions of behaviour, how to recognize them and supports that you can implement. We ran this event previously, with excellent feedback and are really looking forward to this sitting.
