Writing BLISS ROAD, a memoir about the challenges presented by having an undiagnosed autistic dad, woke me to the huge need for our society to learn more about neurodiversity. That's especially true considering 1 in 20 people worldwide has a neurodiverse condition, such as a mental health issue, developmental disorder (ADHD, autism), learning disability or physical neurological problem like epilepsy.
That’s why I just registered for the Stanford Neurodiversity Summit Oct. 1 - 3. The conference is virtual, which makes attending easy peasy, and the price is right at only $20. Here’s a link to the page where you can register and check out the speakers.
Best of all, if you have to work during the live presentations, the sessions will be recorded, so you can pick and choose based on the time you’ve got.
I’m interested in getting more help for neurodiverse families. What would you like to learn about neurodiversity?
PS I’ll pass on what I learn next week.
