Stigma is still rampant with respect to mental disorders in general, but what can we do to reduce shame, silence, and stigma related to autism, ADHD, learning disorders, and other neurodevelopmental conditions? Following up on the February webinar on stigma in general, this session will focus on the sometimes paradoxical stigma related to neurodevelopmental disorders and explore means of stigma reduction.
