Thank you for your interest in writing an article for Neurodiverging! We are happy to review well-written, unique articles that are evidence-based, showcase neurodiversity, and inform our readers to be published on Neurodiverging.com and on Neurodiverging.Medium.com. We strongly encourage you to review some of our blog posts and podcasts to get a sense of our point-of-view before submitting.

Before submitting your article for consideration, please review the following guidelines:
- You may write on any topic within the realm of neurodiversity. We especially appreciate first-person stories from neurodivergent folks and members of mixed neurotype families, as well as articles showcasing new research related to neurodiverse people and book reviews related to neurodiversity.
- We believe autism, ADHD, and other neurodivergence are normal, natural parts of being human, NOT illness or diseases to be cured. Articles from neurotypical people promoting ways to “cure” autistic people and others will not be accepted. If you are neurodivergent yourself and wish to write an opinion piece regarding “cures,” however, we’d be happy to consider it.
- Submission of your piece doesn’t guarantee publication. We’ll review your submission, and if we feel it will benefit our readers, we will write back with an offer.
- Your post must be original and must not have been published anywhere else unless you have clearly notified us otherwise. We may pay less for republished articles.
- Your post should be at least 1000-1200 words. There is no upper word limit.
- Please use bullets, lists, and short paragraphs wherever reasonable – it makes reading much easier.
- We are not the grammar police, but your post must be comprehensible. We will fix a few small errors but will not rewrite your post.
- We only link to high-quality and reputable sites. Other links will be made “no follow.” If you’d like to know ahead of time whether your link will be “do follow,” please include a request in your e-mail, and we will research it and let you know.
- Please be sure that any links in your post are relevant and valid. We will remove links that are irrelevant to the main idea of your post without notice, as well as any broken links.
- Feel free to include a short bio (50 words or so) at the end of your article with a headshot, a link to your site and your social media handles.
