This place is intended as a community resource and centralized repository of information about neurodiversity. The essays I’m writing are coming from a place of lived experience, and represent challenges that I’ve overcome and insights that I’ve had on my own journey of healing and self-acceptance.

Who Am I?
This is the collected work of one person, and that person is not a doctor or formally trained specialist in neurology or psychology.
