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.
