IN ALL INTERACTIONS FIND CONNECTION

Updated: May 2, 2019


For my child to know what it is to be heard I need to listen when they talk to me.


For my child to know what it is to be valued I am to value what my child shares with me.


For my child to know their feelings I am to allow my child to have them.

For my child to make healthy decisions I am to give them their choices.


For my child to be open with me I am to let them ask any question they so desire free from shame or punishment.


For my child to know they are brilliant I am to respond in a way that says YES YOU ARE!


For my child to know their ideas are fantastic I help in anyway I can to see those ideas through.


For my child to know respect I am to respect them, speak to them in a way I like to be spoken to, treat them the same way I am to be treated.


I first seek to connect with my child in ALL interactions so they KNOW through lived experience what it is to be SEEN, LOVED and INTUNE with WHO THEY ARE!

ACKNOWLEDGMENT

TRADITIONAL OWNERS

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we work and live and recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community. We pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging.

OUR AUTISTIC/NEURODIVERGENT CULTURE

​We acknowledge our LBGTIQ2KA+kin autistic/neurodivergent humans.

 

We use identity-first language, "I am autistic", opposed to "I'm a person with autism", reflecting Autism at the core of our identity, that Autism is a Spectrum, a part of neurodivergence and not a disorder. We radically embrace and celebrate neurodivergence.

 

Authoritarian and conforming learning and approaches such as ABA or Applied Behaviour Analysis, treatment or cures, ableism or functioning labels are harmful to both FAN and their child neurodivergent neurologies.

 

AFFILIATED DISCLAIMER

 

ROARHEART™ makes no recommendations nor has any opinions about or is responsible for the content or deficit language of neurodivergence on sites and links that are external to ROARHEART™. The language that describes neurodivergent neurologies and life experiences as disordered, defective or that to be "fixed, changed and cured" is offensive and harmful to FAN and their child.

It is strongly recommended that medical, psychiatric and other therapeutic advice or treatment can only be given by suitably trained and accredited professionals. ROARHEART™ is not a substitute either inferred or directly to replace any form of treatment participants are currently engaged in. We further suggest that prior to making any changes to current treatment participants discuss this with the practitioner that prescribed the treatment or at least get a second opinion from a suitably qualified and accredited clinician. We cannot do this we are not qualified.
