I’m a Neurodivergent (and twice exceptional) writer who shares my own experiences in the classroom, as a student, teacher and parent, to raise awareness about neurodiversity, and the successes, failures and changes needed in the education system. As a neurodivergent black female, I think it’s especially important to share my experiences navigating neurotypical society too. It is through this lens where I coach women through navigating their own struggles and triumphs through their later ADHD diagnosis. We work together to find their strengths and talents so they can finally start living their life on their terms.
I’m also a teacher, who’s an Educational Specialist, writer and speaker, sharing my experiences and expertise in education to help schools and teachers design more neurodiverse friendly classroom spaces where neurodivergent ways of thinking and being are supported and encouraged. Children should grow up knowledgeable of what they need to show up as their best, without feeling ashamed because how they think, learn or achieve doesn’t fit within a model of success not made with their unique brains in mind. I help schools create more supportive Neurodiverse classrooms where this kind of growth is possible.
I work with parents in advocating for their children’s needs, whether gifted and talented, twice exceptional or neurodivergent. We all need to work together to educate children for a changing world, and prepare them to meet this challenge confident in who they are, both in their capabilities and challenges, so they can navigate the adult world with more success.
Stop by my website or on social media, where I share some of my insights and story, in hopes of adding more to the dialogue and narrative surrounding neurodiversity and mental wellbeing. Feel free to contact me here or on any of my social media channels in order to learn more about the services I have on offer.
