Radical accessibility for neurodivergent folks is in some ways a new idea that is still developing. If you’d like to learn more about how to apply it in your everyday life, I am here to help.
Some examples of what I can help with:
- Knowing what to do to help a loved one with depression or anxiety while honouring their agency
- Figuring out what to do next after your child has received a learning disability diagnosis; learning what questions to ask and how to advocate for your kid’s needs
- Designing a presentation, workshop, or lecture so that it is inclusive of people with learning disabilities
- Working with your event or community group to make it more inclusive of people with anxiety, depression or other disabilities
- Understanding the radical model of disability and the politics of disability without book learning
My consultation fee is $45 for a one-hour session but a sliding scale is available for small community groups and low income individuals. I can speak to you over Skype or meet you in person if you are in the Winnipeg area. Contact me at Elizabeth[AT]murkygreenwaters.com if you have questions or to book an appointment.
What makes a consultation different than seeing a therapist?
Many professionals with lots of training and credentials have lots of expertise, but they often don’t know what it’s like to be disabled. I can provide you perspective from someone who lives with learning disabilities and has navigated the mental health system for a long time. I aim to always put the agency of the disabled person at the centre.
I have more than 12 years experience advocating for accommodations for disability in education and in the workplace, and I have been consulting on disability and mental health for more than two years.
