FREE TO BE OURSELVES
Our Neurodivergent Flow is the natural way we;
Autistics, PDA'ers, OCD'ers, ADHDer's, Touretter's etc
love, play, learn, work, live, heal our trauma
and express ourselves.
OUR Living FLOW
We face unintentional harm, everywhere we turn, including from within ourselves. "Trauma that is not transformed is transferred," and protecting my child and me to be whom we were born to be, starts strong withing myself.
Our Neurodivergent Autistic Culture
places our wellbeing and in particular, our safety, first, in all that we do. All else flows on from there.
OUR HEALING FLOW
When all is lost, pain is deep, and hope is gone, where I can't work out what's right or wrong or which way to go, but not where I've been, I become uniquely ready to let go, to do and live differently.
Doing 'differently' comes from deep inner listening, reconnecting, knowing and trusting in our neurodivergent inexplicable knowledge within.
OUR PLAYING FLOW
We're incredible creators.
Curiosity, playfulness and play (for my child that is "self-chosen and self-directed") is vital to our relationships, day-to-day living, careers and happiness.
Things like pain, loss of personal sovereignty and 'education' can kill our joy for creativity and play our pathway to the imagination, ingenuity, creative solutions, healing, connection and bloody feeling good.
OUR LEARNING FLOW
"To be Neurodivergent is to be a person who is wired to think, be and do differently."
The Autistic led Neurodivergent Collective is a global accessible educational and informational resource for parenting, supporting and educating neurodivergent people from birth to adulthood.
As a Co-contributor at The ND.co, I get to share the real inside view of being a Neurodivergent Autistic.
OUR WORKING FLOW
The things we love knowing more about, doing, and mastering, are our innate pursuits and when nurtured become our natural working life and flow.
Societal ableism was the quickest way to disconnect us from who we are, our livihoods and happiness.
Reconnecting to Neurodivergent Autistic Identity and Culture was the path to who we are.
"Yes, having the opportunity to learn about health, relationships, everything that was talked about helped me realise that I’m no different from everyone else. I use to think I was ugly and that no one liked me. I actually feel good about myself, no one is better than me. I’m perfect in my own way. I like myself a lot more and realise who I am. ”
