Ep 117 – My Daughter and Neurodiversity

A very candid and honest conversation with my daughter about her neurodiversity. She opens up about feeling different to her friends from an early age – they seemed to play very differently. She shares why a diagnosis helped her know herself, her experience of medication, and how she’s navigating life day to day. There are also come parenting do’s and don’ts.

Here are the highlights:

(2:30) Catherine shares her experiences pre-diagnosis
(10:01) Let’s talk about the diagnosis – ASD with ADHD on the side!
(14:30) Helping parents understand how they can trigger anxiety
(28:00) Social anxiety
(33:20) Help your child celebrate their strengths and skills
