Am I neurodivergent?

  • As a child, did you feel different from other children your age?

  • Do you find it challenging to make sense of abstract  ideas?

  • Is reading, writing or spelling hard for you? 

  • Do you trouble processing information at the same speed as your peers?

  • Do you struggle to understand your own mind - are you a puzzle to yourself?

  • Do you face difficulties in accomplishing tasks?

  • Are you challenged by tasks requiring dexterity?

  • Are often drained after social encounters?

If you answer any of these questions with yes, you may be neurodivergent.

 I was diagnosed with ADHD

My name is Emma. My attention issues were known to my family since I was small but I wasn't assessed because I didn't cause havoc in school.
