Here are my goals for NEURODIVERSION:
1. To provide a shortcut to useful, interesting information neurodivergent (ND) readers may find interesting, from a neurodivergent curator.
Navigating the sea of the internet can be extremely overwhelming, especially when neurodiverse content is by no means mainstream. I’m going to dive in headfirst and bring up the best, shiniest, most interesting treasure.
2. To provide a tool for education and knowledge sharing.
First, for late-identified neurodivergent adults.
A lot of the information available (on autism and ADHD in particular) is focused on children and is written for parents of ND children. This is due in no small part to the misconception that these are “children’s disorders” that can be grown out of. I’ll focus on information adults would find interesting, useful, and educational.
For an adult grappling with a recent realization or assessment that is causing a paradigm-identity shift (been there, still doing that), having a regular source of information about neurodiversity in manageable pieces rather than trying to drink from the fire hydrant of the internet all at once may be useful.
Second, for neurotypical folks.
I am passionate about doing any work that will move society toward a future in which neurodiversity is celebrated, invited, and included in ways that respect everyone’s needs. The information I’ll share will be useful for any neurotypical (NT) individual who wants to educate themselves about the ND population and our experiences.
Third, for anyone who’s interested in learning more about neurodiversity, what’s going on in the world of neurodiversity right now, and ways to support this community. And, for anyone interested in making new connections and friends they can connect with and relate to around the topic of neurodiversity. Each issue will contain a “Connect” section in which I’ll share the social media accounts of real-life NDs you can connect with online.
What will it look like?
