Embracing neurospicy brains and being a nonconforming ADHD-er, with Em Rusciano

Episode 9

Em Rusciano doesn’t want to be called an advocate, but she does want you to know that the systems in place for neurodivergent girls and women aren’t good enough. Em was diagnosed with ADHD after her son went through the diagnostic process. Since then her eldest daughter Odette has also been diagnosed. Em explains to Dr Golly why she thinks occupational therapy skates too close to conversion therapy, and how she’d change the way we help neurodivergent kids.
