Adrienne's Story

Hello, I'm Adrienne, and my journey as a dedicated therapist and advocate for neurodiverse families is deeply rooted in personal experiences and a passion for making a positive impact.

 

Here's a glimpse into my background:

 

With 15 years of marriage under my belt, I am proud to be a loving partner to my spouse, who happens to have ADHD. Together, we navigate the beautiful complexities of life, raising a wonderful daughter who is neurodiverse. Our shared experiences, have fueled my commitment to supporting families facing similar challenges.

 

My journey as a learner began at the age of eight when I was diagnosed with a learning difference. Early on, I embraced the importance of self-advocacy, navigating the educational system with determination. These early lessons laid the foundation for my understanding of the unique needs and strengths that neurodiverse individuals bring to the table.

 

Being a parent to a neurodiverse child has brought its own set of challenges and triumphs. I have actively participated in numerous Individualized Education Program (IEP) meetings, ensuring my daughter receives the support and accommodations she deserves.

Collaborating with advocates, I've worked tirelessly to navigate the educational landscape and secure the best possible outcomes for my child.
