2eHub Anne Jackson I have been counselling and advocating for and with the twice-exceptional young person for many years. These are young people who are gifted as defined by Gagne’s model of talent development but who also carry an identified disability. Currently I am completing my Doctor of Cognitive Neurodiversity and have been fortunate enough to specialise in the student who carries giftedness and ADHD in the same body. To engage with these wonderfully complex young people I use a combination of Narrative Therapy and ACT as the gifted student is highly likely to bamboozle a counsellor who uses a more directive modality. Such young people may become engaged in a verbal debate over all the reasons that change cannot happen or that change requires others to do something but not them. The result is that many twice-exceptional students will fail to achieve their potential and or become involved in risky strategies to deal with their distress. My passion is to engage such young people on a journey whereby they can become the author of their life story. Being gifted yet disabled is an oxymoron that doesn’t have to be a disaster.

Family Advocacy Family Advocacy formally known as ‘The Institute for Family Advocacy and Leadership Development’ is an independent, impartial advocacy organisation that supports families across New South Wales to promote and defend the rights and interests of people with developmental disability. The organisation is managed and staffed by parents and allies of people with disability, who recognise the issues that people with disability and families face and who can assist in strengthening the advocacy and capacity of families. Family Advocacy was founded by families of people with disability, and differ from carer organisations in that our family members are advocating for people with disability to have a good, ordinary life. We do not advocate for parents or siblings themselves, and believe first and foremost in improving the lives of our family members with disability through natural, community supports rather than government funding or services. All of the advocacy work we undertake, including our events, workshops and resources are underpinned by a theory that provides a comprehensive framework for how to help people with disability achieve a good life. The theory is called Social Role Valorisation (SRV) and can be powerful for families to use to improve the life of their family member with disability. We are currently the...

Metamorphosis Coaches Mentoring for parents of students with ADHD Hi, I’m Jahida, a Female Youth Mentor and Personal Development Coach. I am also the Founder and CEO of Metamorphosis Coaching, a school teacher, mother, a certified life coach and a woman devoted to personal development. Growing up, I was an ambitious, teenage girl but I felt there were many cultural barriers limiting me from pursuing my dreams. Since meeting my husband Faz, I challenged the traditional cultural beliefs and stereotypes that a Muslim woman is not capable of having a successful career while being married, staying true to her principles, faith and committed to raising a family. I wore my hijab at the age of 13 in a time where racism in AU was at it’s peak and the September 11 attacks magnified the traumatic effects of Islamophobia. I faced many challenges as a teenager with my identity, feeling like I didn’t belong in this country, I tackled bullying in a school where I was the only scarfed girl and had to form new friendships every couple of years as I moved from school to school. I am very grateful for the two mentors (my father and math's teacher) that...
