Divergent Mind—Women and Neurodiversity
Divergent Mind explores female neurodivergence. Based on the premise that the experience of women and girls is missing or muted in popular conceptions of autism, ADHD, and other variations, author Jenara Nerenberg explores female experience. She explains how the neurodiversity paradigm can be liberating to women who have been masking neurodivergent traits their whole lives. “Neurodiversity is a paradigm shift that empowers women to come forward, be seen, better understand themselves, and proudly claim identities,” she writes. Nerenberg is a speaker, advocate author, and founder of the Neurodiversity Project.
