Our Values

We are neurodivergent-led Allied Health Practice. 

We are passionate about helping children flourish and grow, to give them a better shot at learning and build strong relationships to lead a fuller life.​ We fully believe in providing the best care & guidance to your loved ones. As such, we strive to provide neurodiversity affirming evidence-based services. The Nurture team presume competence, respect sensory differences and body autonomy of children. Nurture aims to implement practices that are respectful, culturally competent, trauma-sensitive and empathetic.

We respect Neurodiversity and follow recommendations given by the autistic community. Neurodiversity affirming approaches are at the core of what we do. We are always learning more about the neurodiversity movement and changing the way we work to align better with neurodiversity affirming practices and be a strong ally for neurodivergents. We do not use/engage in compliance training in therapy as it has been reported by the autistic community that it is trauma-inducing (often leading to PTSD). We adopt strength-based approaches and reporting (avoiding ableist language use), and work on neurodiversity affirming goals (such as self-advocacy).
