Wheels On My Back is a first hand account about growing up neurodivergent and navigating a neurotypical world as a neurodivergent (#actuallyautistic, #actuallyadhd) adult with CPTSD.
Because despite the many myths, misconceptions, and stigmas that dominate the mainstream narrative, neurodivergent kids grow into neurodivergent adults - often with a lot of trauma, internalized ableism, and shame to unpack.
On this podcast, I’ll explore the burgeoning neurodiversity paradigm and why it matters to adults like me whose oft-overlooked perspectives can vastly improve the mental health of neurodivergent kids and their families. We care because we know them - we are them.
Thank you for listening! And, thank you for being <3
