Neurodiversity (Autism Spectrum Disorder): A Unique Lens

Gain insight into the fascinating world of neurodiversity at PACDL's webinar on June 6 with Dr. Pooja Shah.

Neurodiverse individuals see the world through a unique lens, with perspectives and behaviors that may differ from the norm. Dr. Shah will shed light on this often-misunderstood aspect of human diversity.

In this one-hour Zoom session, Dr. Shah will cover:

1. The fundamentals of neurodiversity and how it shapes behavior.
2. Common misconceptions and stereotypes about neurodiverse individuals.
3. Strategies for effectively representing neurodiverse clients in criminal cases.
4. Mitigation measures tailored for adults and juveniles, with a focus on early childhood development, trauma, and adverse childhood experiences.
5. The intersection of neurodiversity, mental health, and the criminal justice system.

This presentation is about equipping you with the tools and insights you need to advocate fiercely for your clients and ensure that justice is served. So, whether you're a seasoned attorney or new lawyer, this webinar is a do not miss event for anyone passionate about delivering top-notch representation to all clients, regardless of neurodiversity.
