Maximising Potential in Children Who are Wired Differently


Parents and teachers play a vital role in unlocking children’s potential and maximising their strengths. To do that, they need to understand them and their needs. They may feel the child is wired differently, but they don’t know what the problem is, or how to help and support. This session shows how with the right connection and communication skills, we can all help such children develop into thriving, resilient adults. Incorporated is the transformational story of parenting coach Elaine Halligan’s son, who by the age of seven, had been excluded from three schools and written off as stupid and naughty.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
