Parents often worry about whether they should share kids’ diagnoses with them. And, if so, how should that explanation go? Once kids know about their diagnosis, will they use it as a crutch to avoid building skills? Will they feel damaged somehow? Will others start seeing them in a more negative light?
Neuropsychologist Mandi White-Ajmani, PhD, Owner of Small Brooklyn Psychology, talked through all these questions and discussed how to approach a conversation about diagnoses with children of various ages. Dr. White-Ajmani was joined by therapist Jill DiPietro, LCSW, who moderated a question-and-answer session and shared her expertise as well.
