A Few of My Favorite Things! Resources for Neurodivergent Folx and the People Who Love Them

As a neurodivergent (ND) person, I have spent a lifetime trying to figure myself out and to help neurotypical (NT) people understand me. Since so many of my clients are neurodivergent and/or have neurodivergent loved ones, I am often asked for neurodiversity-affirming resources. I’ll keep this article updated as I run across more!! You can also follow me on Facebook and Instagram, where I often share resources to my feed and stories. (Please note that I receive no compensation for sharing these resources below!! They are folks I’ve discovered organically over the last several years.)

  • Neuroclastic is an autistic-led disability rights nonprofit, and a great alternative to non-affirming organizations (such as Autism Speaks). Find them on Instagram and Facebook.
  • Neurodivergent Therapists is an effort to match ND clients with ND therapists. Find them on Instagram.
  • TraumaGeek (Janae Elizabeth) develops neuroscience education for parents and helping professionals. Find them on Facebook and Instagram.
  • Neurowild (Em) is an autistic and ADHD speech pathologist, and their resources are phenomenal! Find them on Instagram and Facebook.
  • Fidgets and Fries (Tiffany Hammond) is a Black autistic author and parent to autistic kids. Find her on Instagram and Facebook.
  • The Neurodivergent Teacher (McAlister) is a ND accessibility specialist. Find her on Instagram and Facebook.
  • ADDitude Magazine is a must for articles for neurotypical folks wanting to understand ND realities. Find their website here.
  • ChronicKali is a UK-based shop that makes some really neat communication cards and also tons of affirming stickers and clothing. Find them on Etsy.
  • Everything Unspoken is a shop that makes affirming pins and other cool items. Find them on Etsy.

A quick note on these: since I’m twice exceptional (2e) and raising a 2e kid, my knowledge is primarily of groups who support the 2e community.

I’m sure there are even more incredible resources out there, such as books and podcasts. Feel free to comment or send me a message with your favorites!

If you or someone you know would like to work with me on healing the trauma most of us have endured as neurodivergent people in a world built by and for neurotypicals, please get in touch with me or schedule a free consultation.

Disclaimer: While most clients find our time together therapeutic, I am not a licensed mental health care practitioner and do not provide psychotherapy or mental health treatment. During our intake process and subsequent plan we develop together, I will refer you to therapies, counseling, coaching, legal, and/or medical help as necessary.
