We Don't Yet Know What we Don't Yet Know, Bridges Learning system with Dr Katrina Martin and Kat Harhai

Lou interviews Katrina and Kat from the Bridges Learning System. On the same journey as Lou, moving away from behaviourism and towards neurodiversity affirming practices, these two clever women have created a wonderful curriculum for neurodivergent children. The "Insight Sprites" take children through an affirming process where they discover neurodiversity and through interactions with the characters, learn to accept and embrace difference. The curriculum has been developed with input and guidance from neurodivergent adults and can be accessed easily online, available to teachers, families and therapists. The discussion moves from an overview of the curriculum, unpacking behaviour and even touching on the intersection of neurodivergence and the criminal justice system. Finally Kat shares an extensive list of mentors and resources listed below and on the Square Peg Round Whole website.

Kat Harhai
