The Strengths of Neurodivergence
I created a graphic for a recent training I gave on neurodivergent-affirming psychological evaluations and wanted to share it here! Though neurodivergence is a broad term, here I will focus on two of my most common referral questions - ADHD and autism. Frequently, when people come in to see me for an autism or ADHD evaluation, they know what they struggle with (and have heard plenty of feedback about this too) but they do not always know their own strengths, or common strengths associated with neurodivergence. While of course this list is not exhaustive, these are some common strengths of neurodivergent individuals I have met. What are some other strengths you can think of that are associated with neurodivergence in yourself or others?
