This episode is the second in a two-part series about parents who are diagnosed with some kind of neurodifference as adults, and often as a result of discovering their child’s neurodivergence. If you haven’t heard it yet, in last week’s episode, I talked with Dr. Melissa Neff, a licensed psychologist who specializes in diagnosing differently wired children and working with them and their families. We talked about the unique challenges of going through this discovery process as an adult, as well as considerations regarding diagnoses, therapy, and the parenting / child relationship.
To create today’s episode, I put a call out to the TiLT community to connect with parents who are living this experience, and today I’m sharing interviews with four different people, each with their own unique story that shares some common threads. My guests are Copper, Bill, Emma, and Nathan—all of whom are raising differently wired children, and all who are still very much in the thick of reconciling their own life experiences and neurodifferences while figuring out how to best move forward in a way that supports them and their families.
