Thriving in a World That Wasn't Designed for You

A long-overdue, much-needed answer for women who have a deep sense of being different due to their neurodiversity (such as  ADHD, autism, synesthesia, high sensitivity, sensory processing disorder and more).

Detailní informace

Detailní popis produktu

An eye-opening study of neurodivergent women – including those with ADHD, autism, synesthesia, high sensitivity, and sensory processing disorder – examining why these unique traits are often overlooked in women and how society can benefit from embracing their strengths.

Jenara Nerenberg, a successful writer, entrepreneur, and mother with degrees from Harvard and Berkeley, was surprised to learn that her "symptoms" were actually signs of autism and ADHD, not just anxiety. As a journalist, she delved into research on neurodiversity – a perspective that celebrates the diversity of our minds rather than labeling them as normal or abnormal.

Unfortunately, sensory processing differences in women are frequently brushed aside, overlooked, masked or mistaken for other issues. With a system that tends to focus on diagnosing young boys, and societal pressure for girls to conform, many women go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. This can lead to feelings of depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem, while also causing them to miss out on the valuable contributions of their unique minds.

Through sharing real stories and dispelling common misconceptions, Nerenberg sheds light on the various ways neurodivergent traits can manifest in women.
Furthermore, she provides practical suggestions for how to better communicate, design environments, and support individuals with divergent minds. By embracing the diversity of neurodivergent brains, we can create a brighter future for all.
