Share This Post and Help a Neurodiverse Family


I I had a wonderful online meetup recently with those who read BLISS ROAD, my memoir about being the daughter of an undiagnosed autistic dad.

The grown children of neurodiverse parents, we were able to share the difficulty of achieving emotional wellbeing, not because our parents didn’t love us, but because we were raised before assessments for their neurodiversities came about. When we did begin to wonder what skewed the dynamics in our families, there were no resources to guide us.

If possible, please share this post with at least one person who believes their family might be neurodiverse, which means having one or more members who have one of a dozen neurodiverse conditions: developmental issue like autism, ADHD; mental illnesses such as chronic depression, anxiety, schizophrenia; dyslexia, dysgraphia and other learning disabilities; or neurological physical issue like epilepsy, stroke or Traumatic Brain Injury.

The more we share our stories, the more therapists and researchers will take notice, and the more services will be developed that will help neurodiverse families thrive.
