Neurodivergent Trauma from The Q Word Podcast

Following the Special Populations in Trauma series, and still sponsored by the Georgia Region 5 Regional Trauma Advisory Committee (RTAC), Nyssa and Lisa talk with educator Britanny Smith about how to care for what can be considered the most special, at-risk population of patients: the neurodivergent. 

In part one, learn how to recognize the signs of ASD, ADD, ODD, and other psychiatric disorders, especially in the pediatric population, and get tips on how to treat them without causing more distress.  

In part two, Britanny shares her carefully cultivated “Toolkit” with The Q Word Podcast audience, explaining to Lisa and Nyssa how to assemble one to use in your practice when facing the complex interactions required when dealing with the neurodivergent population.
