Come along to hear about:

  • What neurodivergence is
  • What are some of the myths and misconceptions about neurodivergence?
  • Different ways of thinking about neurodivergence (deficit model – “it’s crap to be neurodivergent”, strengths model – “being neurodivergent is awesome”, others)
  • Diagnosis and support: how to get help
  • Neurodivergence and owning your own business (common issues, common strengths)

 

IMPORTANT:

  • Trigger warning – there will be talk about trauma (emotional abuse of various kinds)
  • Please be respectful of presenters’ time and emotional headspace; they want to be useful, but don’t have the capacity to respond to long, detailed personal messages.
  • The presenters won’t be providing individual advice or diagnosing anyone in this session.
  • Bianca is a trained psychologist with a specialist interest in this field, so you’re welcome to reach out for assessment in your own time
