Episode 8 - Podcast
Let's be honest... Society wouldn't be able to function without its spicy and spectacular neurodiverse population. In many cases, we're the artists, musicians, inventors, explorers and the passion-filled leaders, and this week on the podcast is all about celebrating the ADHD brain in all its glory!
In honour of Neurodiversity Celebration Week, I'm exploring the gifts of ADHD from all angles with my favourite Neurotypical... my husband and Co-Founder of Future ADHD, Eric.
This is the perfect episode to share with the NT in your life, to help them get a greater understanding of the ADHD experience.
Eric and I talk about:
Why it's so important for neurotypicals to be educated on neurodiversity and how they can be good allies
Where the word neurodiversity came from and its etymology
Why diversity in brain types matters and why it makes society stronger
Our relationship dynamic as a ND/NT couple and how we support and cater for each other's needs
Why we need a balanced view of the strengths & challenges (which is why we're devoting a whole episode to strengths today - whooo whooop!)
What does it actually mean to celebrate neurodiversity?
How we make our company a ND-affirming and flexible workplace
