Last week I was interviewed by my friend Sam at All Neurotypes Office. We talked about executive functioning, the roles labels play, what disabled productivity is, and some of my special interests.
Watch the full interview here!
Sam and I met through a Neurodiversity discussion group he facilitates at Duke University where he is a physics researcher. If you are neurodivergent and have never been part of a discussion or support group filled with other neurodivergent people, I highly recommend it!
Growing up neurodivergent in a neurotypical world is incredibly isolating. Most of us are used to people around us not understanding our point of view, of being told that the way we experience the world is wrong, of being called liars. Just spending some time around other neurodivergent people and hearing “oh yes! I understand that,” or “I relate to that,” when sharing your experiences can be a really healing experience.
So if you haven’t already, I encourage you to look for ways to connect with other neurodivergent people locally or remotely.
