Hello! My name’s Hannah. I was diagnosed as autistic around the age of 30, and since then have found I have a lot in common with other neurodivergent people: I share executive dysfunction stories with people with ADHD, sensory sensitivities with dyslexic people, social awkwardness with dyspraxic friends…
The more neurodivergent people I meet, the more I realise how important it is to share our lived experiences, both to normalise them and to help neurotypical people understand what it’s like.
The thing is, Neurodiversity isn’t some kind of complex puzzle. We don’t know life any other way. And a bit of kindness and understanding makes a huge difference in bridging the gap between us and neurotypicals.
What Else Do You Do?
Outside of work and all things neurodivergent, I love spending time with my husband and my dog, I play the piano and could spend days on end researching family history!
In terms of education, I have a Bachelors Degree and a Masters of Research in Law [LLB (Hons) and MRes] and I recently completed a Certificate called “Understanding ADHD: Current Research and Practice” from King’s College London.
