106: Informal Mentorship and Mentoring Neurodiverse Students with Stephanie Santos Youngblood
This week, I have a guest, Stephanie Santos Youngblood, who discusses the topic of informal mentorship and mentoring neurodiverse students.
Tune in to this episode to hear all about:
-What informal mentorship is,
-The impact that campus service workers have on first-gen students,
-Things to consider when mentoring neurodiverse students,
-Our experiences being neurodivergent or having loved ones who are neurodiverse,
-How to resit deficit-based perspectives and internalized ableism, and much much more!
I have to admit this is probably among my top 10 favorite episodes and you’ll quickly learn why.
