DR KHURRAM SADIQ - How To Embrace The Super Human in Your Autistic Child

DR KHURRAM SADIQ - How To Embrace The Super Human in Your Autistic Child

Today I am joined by Neurodevelopmental Psychiatrist in ASD and ADHD, TEDx Speaker, blogger vlogger, and Mental Health Expert, Dr Khurram Sadiq.

With more and more children receiving Autism Diagnosis and many more awaiting a formal diagnosis, it can be a traumatic time. Not only for the child going through it but for the parents who have to get to grips with parenting, getting the correct to support and navigating a system that is both confusing and overwhelming.

In my conversation with Khurram we discuss the following:

  • How many parents of autistic children want to help but feel powerless to do so.
  • Why getting interventions in place at an early age can have a massive impact on the long term outcomes for later life.
  • The importance of managing transitions throughout an autistic child's school life.
  • How parents often go through a bereavement process when their child is diagnosed
  • A number of tips and tricks to help with diagnoses and getting the right support at the right time.
