Experiences Of Neurodiversity In Family Law

Experiences of Neurodiversity in Family Law

Hosted by Judy Singer and Elena Campbell

Wednesday, 23 March 2022, 1:00 – 2:30 pm AEDT

Please join the National Family Law Pathways Network for a lunchtime webinar exploring the concept of neurodiversity in the context of Family Law.

Scientific research, clinical practice and biographical testimony demonstrate that neuro-conditions are very different from one to another, and also exist on a broad spectrum. Clients of the courts include individuals with Autism and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder amongst other presentations, and every neurodiverse individual and family has to overcome different hurdles as they move through the legal system. It is a challenge to translate this neuro- complexity into law. Advocates, researchers, and neurodiverse individuals are calling for legal entities and support services to better understand neurodiverse people, and reconsider bias and misconceptions that are a hindrance to better outcomes in family law and other legal cases.

During this webinar sociologist Judy Singer will be joined by researcher and lawyer Elena Campbell, to discuss what the term neurodiversity means, and present research regarding how our current legal system serves neurodiverse people and their families, including experiences of the legal system as confusing and challenging to navigate.
