MADE UP YOUR MIND?



My child and I can find it difficult to make decisions.


Big or small.

It's even harder if there is pressure of any sort.


Panic can set in. Good thinking can go out the window.

It is helpful to work things through with one another or someone else.

We can pause to connect with our feelings and thoughts.

We work towards letting go of what others think.

Or let go of our own self imposed expectations that far exceed our capabilities that might be causing unnecessary pressure/stress/panic in order to know our needs, wants, desires and choices.

We know ourselves and what our bodies need when we stop and listen.

We can always change our minds after making a decision because sometimes it is by making a decision we realise it is or isn't right for us.

Plus things, places or people can change and we allow room to adjust to those changes.

We can change our minds as many times as we need.

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.
