Autism Awareness Month Bliss
Did you know an estimated 1 in 20 people has a neurodiverse condition?
Did you know there are dozens of neurodiverse conditions besides autism that include mental illnesses (such as depression and anxiety), learning disabilities (such as dyslexia and dysgraphia), and developmental disabilities (such as ADHD, Down syndrome and cerebral palsy)?
I didn’t either until I researched BLISS ROAD. Now I understand there are not only neurodiverse people in my family, but in most families, and that almost all of us has “something going on.”
Who are the neurodiverse people in your life?
Me: too many to count, but I love them!
