Autistic/Neurodivergent   |   Storyteller   |   Creative   |   Aussie from Down Under

is to inspire and support autistic and neurodivergent humans to connect with themselves (their children), find their flow, identity and culture through storytelling and creativity

Fan of Roarheart, an artist, designer and writer is passionate about revelling in absolute awe and amazement at both their child’s and own Autism and Neurodivergence, celebrating their identity, culture and flow.

Embarking on a journey of self-discovery, side by side together, navigating and mastering their Neurodivergent Flow, their Autistic way of living.

 

They are successfully achieving this by applying the same principles and approach of the highly successful and liberating face-to-face program with astounding outcomes (participant informed) for neurodivergent girls, young women and non-binary, inclusive of LGBTQ2IA+ kin.

 

The program’s textbook shares Fan’s brutally honest and raw hearted journals of their lived experience (unknowingly) as an; undiagnosed Autistic, PDA’er, OCD’er, ADHD’er (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and how they survived family violence, addictions (food, smoking, alcohol, spending), mental illness (poor body image, self-hate, depression), difficult relationships, financial insecurity and hardship, unemployment and struggles with day–to–day living to find a new way of living according to their truth and what they needed to be okay.

 

This has been central to finding peace in a chaotic world when applied to all areas of their life, especially learning. 

The author loves and respects their PDA Autistic child's autodidactic, and non-conformist, free-thinking, which when encouraged and nurtured supports their child's entrepreneurial learning style.

 

Before making a decision to entirely devote their life to the ongoing quest of aiding and adapting to their child's way of living, as well as finding new ways to support their child's natural way of loving, playing, learning, working, and their diverse needs, they had a successful career. 

Of course, there were definite loss and major changes which had to take place, to fully commit to this new way of life moving forward. None of which the author felt was more important than being called to step up to the challenge of fulfilling this new role and their real life's purpose.

Bravely and courageously saying farewell to all that was familiar, was a painfully laborious process that required shedding and detaching from the many different layers of self – unmasking – that the author had identified with for most of their life. The author beautifully describes this as being the catalyst which provided them with the most insight and clarity into who they truly are, but also the only job or accolade worth succeeding at in this life. 

This included such things as their love of teaching graphic arts, running their own business, hosting and attending many public speaking seminars and local workshops, and quirky talent and love of appearing in several television commercials.

OUR AUTISTIC/NEURODIVERGENT CULTURE

​We acknowledge our LBGTIQ2KA+kin autistic/neurodivergent humans.

 

We use identity-first language, "I am autistic", opposed to "I'm a person with autism", reflecting Autism at the core of our identity, that Autism is a Spectrum, a part of neurodivergence and not a disorder. We radically embrace and celebrate neurodivergence.

 

Authoritarian and conforming learning and approaches such as ABA or Applied Behaviour Analysis, treatment or cures, ableism or functioning labels are harmful to both FAN and their child neurodivergent neurologies.

The language that describes neurodivergent neurologies and life experiences as disordered, defective or that to be "fixed, changed and cured" is offensive and harmful to FAN and their child.
