Home and family

“We should not fit our life to the demands of social conformity; we can’t find a model to live by from others, we can only find that within ourselves.”

“We do not think of the neurodiversity movement as one that seeks to integrate neurominority people into all the existing ways of living in the world as a human being.”

“There is a certain way of being human that is our way. We want to be free to live our life in our way, and not in imitation of other’s life.”


It is critical for children and parents to understand and affirm neurodiversity. This leads to greater self-awareness, self-acceptance, and overall well-being. Starting with more positive narratives and an honest and affirming discussion of strengths and needs, parents become better advocates for their children’s authentic growth and development in a way that is tailored to their unique strengths and challenges. Through this modelling, children learn to be strong self-advocates for creating equity for themselves in their environments.
