From my neurodivergent family to yours… I’m Danielle Sullivan, an autistic certified neurodiversity life coach, trauma-informed specialist, and neurodiversity parent coach. I’m here to help us all explore the world of neurodivergence. Neurodiverging episodes include stories and lessons from my life, deep dives into the traits and histories of ADHD and autism, and guest experts who talk about issues pertinent to ADHD and autistic folks in society.
