Living with Autism, ADHD, and other Neurodiverse Conditions Can be Tough

Types of Neurodivergence

There are many neurodiverse conditions, and each type uniquely affects the brain. People with neurodivergent brains often think differently from neurotypical people. They may see the world more creatively or intuitively.

Neurodiverse Conditions include:

  • ADHD
  • Autism (ASD)
  • Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Dyslexia
  • Dyspraxia(Developmental Coordination Disorder DCD)
  • Dyscalculia
  • Dysgraphia

And there are others as well.

Increase your confidence and be more aware of your own triggers and how your behaviours impact others

Imagine what life would be like if you had a journal to to help YOU get through one day at a time, sharing both your good and not so good days. Being able to learn to understand your triggers and also how your actions and behaviours affect other individuals.

Imagine if that Journal was a safe place to colour in and doodle which is a known way that helps the brain to relax, with inspiring simple quotes.

This could lead to you having better days at home, in school and in the community.

Help your child understand their emotions, triggers and behaviours and gain valuable insights yourself

How amazing would it be if as a parent, you had a Journal that would help your child express themselves either by writing or drawing but helping you to understand their day as well as how they are feeling.

Who am I?

I am Sonal Dave, an Award-Winning multi-passionate, bringing together my experience of 20 plus years working in the public sector, entertainment, and events industry.

Now as a Ceremonies Celebrant, Lady Toastmaster, Public Speaking Expert and Published Author in 2 Collaboration Books, I am moving forward with my Public Speaking Strategy to ensure that all Adults and Children find a way to be able to learn to be able to communicate with confidence, use the skill of storytelling and find ways to Journal, (orally, written, drawing). Being able to do this is such a great way to help both children and adults be better at accepting themselves for the wonderful individuals they are and also when life gets difficult and challenging, finding ways to manage, accept and letting go.

Introducing the Journals

There are 2 Journals that have been created with the support of a focus group. The focus group included adults with a neurodiverse condition, parents who have a child with a neurodiverse condition, individuals who work with the neurodiverse community and a speech therapist.

 

Both Journals have the months of the year, there are 2 pages side by side for them to write about or draw the good and the not so good days.

There are mandalas throughout both Journals to colour in or doodle in

There are inspirational quotes in both

Why Journaling?

Journaling is an important activity and whether you Journal orally, written or by drawing, it is important to practice and do regularly. It is a simple activity but when done in a structured way has shown to have a huge impact on both the physical and mental health of an individual with a neurodiverse condition.

A structured approach helps to share what has happened in a storytelling way. This helps to start to recognise your triggers as well as how your behaviour affects others.

These Journals are for you if you:

 

  • Are an adult with a Neurodivergent Mind
  • Are the parent of a child or an adult with a Neurodivergent Mind
  • Work in a school and teach Adults or Children with a Neurodivergent Mind
  • Work in the community and teach Adults or Children with a Neurodivergent Mind
  • Work in the medical field and teach Adults or Children with a Neurodivergent Mind
  • Are an employer who employs Adults with a Neurodivergent Mind

Listen to your gut and follow your instincts. The time is now to get the support be it as an adult or as the parent of a child. It’s important for a neurodivergent mind to be Journaling

30-40% of the population live with Autism, ADHD, and other Neurodiverse Conditions

According to research by adhdaware.org, about 30% to 40% of the population are thought to be neurodiverse. Now I am sure that you will agree with me that this figure is higher than you would have expected. The remaining majority of the population are classed as neurotypical.

The truth is when we sit on a bus or train, or go to a wedding, are shopping in the supermarket and even at our own family gatherings, the person sitting next to you could have a neurodiverse condition.

 

Society needs to be more aware, more open to being educated as well as understanding of what being neurodiverse means.

Now imagine what life would be like if society had a better understanding of the neurodiverse community.

The little bit of good news is that in recent years, there has been a shift in thinking. Neurodiversity is now seen as an individual with a creative mind and strength. People with neurodivergent brains are valued members of society. They should be seen less as trouble and difficult, and more as a blessing and a gift.

Neurodiversity is not going away

More individuals, both adults and children are being diagnosed and we need to be able to support them. Finances in the medical sector and communities are sparse and my Journal helps to bridge some of the gaps where support is not available to directly help. It is so important to be able to use the tool of Journaling.

The Journals will help you throughout the year and will be a foundation of practice to make this part of a routine to help.

What are you waiting for?

It really is the right time to buy the Journal. Buy your copy to help you as an Adult or your child with a Neurodivergent Mind.

If you are an aunty, uncle or member of the community, this could even be a great birthday, christmas or diwali gift.
