Back By Popular Demand! The Neurodiverse Pet Grooming Professionals Summit!

Think you know what it’s like to be neurodiverse? Think again! Categorized as an individual with autism, ADHD, dyslexia or other cognitive differences – Neurodivergents (ND) make up to 50% of our community!

What’s often viewed by neurotypicals (NT) as dramatic, lazy or irresponsible may just be a misinterpretation of someone with neurodiversity (ND)! Employers and employees in the pet industry can close the gap of misunderstanding by creating awareness of what ND is, how it affects the actions and thinking process of an individual and what solutions can unify our community!

We have invited some of the most talented ND speakers from inside and outside the pet community to lead the conversation around ND inclusion for this 2-day event.

  • Executive Dysfunction- What’s Your Junction? with Laura Civello Hearn

    a

    Do you ever get overwhelmed when there’s a million things you feel like you need to do, but you just can’t get started? Executive functioning is a part of our brains that helps regulation (both feelings and emotions), task initiation, transitions, and help us do day to day tasks that are supposed to keep us alive. For those of us that are neurodiverse, these everyday tasks can seem daunting.
