    I just wanted to say thank you very much for your articles. They are extremely helpful and really resonate with me. I have a twelve year old child who has severe anxiety and is on the autism spectrum. I am constantly in ‘ translator’ mode with my child and his dad. Your articles have helped me to explain to everyone what is happening during miscommunication .

    So a big, heartfelt thank you from Australia, for the difference you make in people’s lives.

    You use the word “neurodiverse” when the correct word would be “neurodivergent” or “neuroatypical”. “Diverse” applies to groups, not individuals.
