MEET THE WITH GIFT TEAM

Heide Emrich

The With Gift Founder | M. Cl. Sc., Reg. CASLPO | Speech-Language Pathologist 

Certified RDI¬ģ Program Consultant | Chopra Meditation Instructor

During her more than 30 years as a paediatric Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) in Southern Ontario, Heide has passionately supported neurodiverse clients and their families in clinical, home, childcare and school settings. Through her work, Heide has consistently found that families and educators want to know how to help their children or students to better connect with them and with their peers. Their overall goal for their children or students is to have a good life, filled with love and friendships, and some independence. Recognizing these goals, and that families and educators are finding themselves in ever more stressful and overwhelming situations without the resilience necessary to find balance and well-being in their own lives, The WITH Gift, was born. The aim of The WITH Gift is to increase well-being by supporting parents and educators in building a deeper, neurodiversity-affirming relationship with themselves, each other, and the children they guide.

Alycia Ryan

Parent | Contributor | Community Co-Facilitator

Alycia completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology in 2023. She begins her Master of Arts program in Counselling Psychology in September 2024 to pursue a career as a psychotherapist specializing in autism and ADHD. Her dream is to support individuals and families in navigating challenges with compassion using a holistic approach through a trauma-informed, neurodiversity-affirming, solution-focused lens. She is passionate about walking alongside other parents and guardians in their pursuit of peace and connection.

As a late-diagnosed autistic adult and parent to two unique and beautiful autistic children, she has a unique perspective that allows her to view the world through several different lived experiences. One of her children is an unconventional communicator who uses many creative ways to communicate with those around him, including Gestalts, drawing, and an AAC device. He requires significant support and accommodation to navigate safely through the world. Her other child has a combination of ADHD and autism with a Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) profile. With their unique expressions of neurodivergence and her own experience, Alycia understands the importance of acknowledging individual needs, how they are expressed and supported, and how crucial it is to consider each person as an individual and meet them where they are.
