Neurodiversity and Me: Georgie’s Story

8 mins read

We all think, learn and experience the world in different ways. In other words, we’re all cognitively diverse.  

But you may be more familiar with the term ‘neurodiverse’ or ‘neurodiversity’. 

Neurodiversity is an umbrella social term often used to describe many types of psychological differences, like autism, ADHD and dyslexia. 

It can be easy to assume that those of us with a certain neurodiversity will all share the same characteristics or have similar diagnosis experiences. 

But everyone’s got their unique story.  

We want to highlight the diversity of thought within everyone. 

Join Georgie, as she utilises Neurodiversity Celebration Week 2024, to share her journey of discovering more about her ADHD and dyslexia, and how it has led her to where she is today.

She shares what life was like growing up neurodiverse in a ‘neurotypical’ world and how things changed for her when she received her diagnoses. 

Only by hearing each other’s stories and talking about our unique minds can we truly begin to understand and support neurodiversity at work. 

Everyone’s story is different and deserves to be celebrated. We may share common experiences and strengths, or perhaps find little overlap. This is the real and wonderful nature of neurodiversity.
