Discovering you might be neurodivergent can be an overwhelming experience, especially if your already an adult! You might not realize there can be benefits to you being diagnosed and just how common an experience being missed over until adulthood can be!

In this  seminar we’ll be discussing the reasons why girls tend to be missed over on diagnosis, as well the benefits and risks of getting diagnosed as an adult. We’ll dig deep on the controversial debate of self diagnosis and even take a sneak peak at what testing with a professional might look like.

Topics that’ll be covered are:

  • Self Diagnosis verses professional assessments- the good, the bad, the ugly. Testing as an adult- is it actually worth it?

  • What does testing look like and how should I prepare?

  • Can a diagnosis actually do anything for me as an adult?

A late life diagnosis may help us understand ourselves better, sometimes it takes asking the hard questions to see real healing and feel successful.
