Parenting is a lifelong journey filled with incredible highs, daunting lows, and everything in between. As parents, we do anything necessary to be certain our kids are happy and healthy. Since there’s no universal parent handbook that contains “all the right answers,” sometimes we get stuck. Sometimes we’re scared. We always worry. The sheer size of our responsibility can make us feel isolated and vulnerable. Please attend this panel discussion addressing the power of neurodiversity and how learning differences, anxiety, and depression are linked. Moderated by Dr. Rosalie Whitlock, executive director of Children’s Health Council, Palo Alto.
