Welcome to Neurodivergence!

This is a space to discuss anything about neurodivergence. This isn't just a space for neurodivergent (ND) people - neurotypical (NT) people can post here too! (e.g. to learn more or for help supporting friends)

ND conditions are separate from illnesses, because people who have them are not unwell, they're just 'wired differently'. Currently, the most well known ND conditions are autism and ADHD, but definitions can also include dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, and more.

Why did we make this forum?

As mentioned above, ND doesn't fit neatly into any existing category. We know that ND conditions aren't illnessnes in the same way that anxiety and depression are, so Health & Wellbeing doesn't quite work. Given this, we felt a Neurodivergent category made the most sense.

As always with new forums, we'll continue to tweak this and listen to your feedback while we roll it out. Feel free to share your thoughts on this new category here or via DM to @TheMix!
All behaviour is a need trying to be met.

    I think this is a great forum to have for the neurodivergent community as research as shown many of these individuals feel most comfortable communicating online/using technology so I can imagine it will be a very helpful and useful forum!!
