Freedom From Violence
One in two children
Types of violence include neglect, emotional, psychological, spiritual, cultural, social, financial, verbal, sexual, physical and all types of inequalities. Children with disabilities are 3.7 times more likely than non-disability children to be targeted or exposed to any violence.
Our ROARHEART team have all experienced violence as children, teenagers, young adults and adults.
We know, from lived experience as Neurodivergent Autistics, PDA'ers, ADHD'ers, OCD'ers (and other neurological expressions), how scary, complex and painful these experiences are and the daily inner work required to heal and find ways to be safe, well and connected to our innate pursuits and joy.
65% of people with disability experience violence after
the age of 15.
Professionals are only just learning about the impact of trauma upon non-disability humans and very far away from understanding the impact and repair for neurodiverse minds, hearts and bodies like ours.
We are proactive as we Pre-empt, Prepare and Protect ourselves from all forms of violence that we can experience from friends, family, professionals, service providers, learning and medical institutions.
We listen carefully to our Individual Neurodivergent Autistic knowledge to guide us, placing our safety, health, well-being and joy first in all that we do.
