Hi, I’m JoyGenea, International Neurodiversity Coach.
And today we’re moving on and talking about #2 on that list of assisting young adults into advancement, and it’s about helping them create support and having a team and I talk about it a lot, but I’m gonna remind you in this incident when launching outside of their original household and environment, you have, if you are their support system, their parent, you have been providing all of that support and now to replace you they need a wide variety of people.
So if they’re moving on to college campus that’s that can be a variety of things from student counseling that’s on-site, to student support, to meeting and helping them connect with their advisor. A team of people to help support them in their goals, to be checking in, to be having some conversations, some people that care, that’s what can be very helpful. Don’t forget therapists are also great to have at these times of transition for anybody, but especially for a neurodiverse. That anxiety can kick in there and everything else can go to heck.
So just a reminder, support systems are really valuable. Help them to create those environments.
