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

I’m a neurodivergent (ND) trauma coach, so if you need to talk more about this please book an appointment with me!

As an 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!! 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.
  • Lives in the Balance (founded by Ross Greene) provides training and support that is a great alternative to ABA and other behavioral approaches.
  • 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! I love the Neurodiversity-Affirming IEP Accommodations resource. Find them on Instagram and Facebook.
  • The PDA Society offers resources for home and school to support folks with a PDA profile (pathological demand avoidance is the most well-known meaning of PDA but I prefer the more affirming Perpetual Drive for Autonomy)
  • 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.
  • Sauce Strap is an ND-led shop that makes earplugs, earplug holders, and other items.
  • 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.

Facebook Groups

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.

You can also follow me on Facebook and Instagram, where I often share resources to my feed and stories. I’m sure there are even more incredible resources out there, such as Discord servers, TikTok creators, 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.
