Neurodivergence allows people to experience life differently and ought to be recognised as an important and valuable form of diversity, that has greatly benefited society and our communities throughout history. Alongside this, it is also important to acknowledge that there can be difficulties associated with aspects of these differences, with particular recognition that much of our society is set up for neurotypical people. Sometimes, the process of assessment and diagnosis can help to bring a heightened awareness of self, and of adaptations and strategies that can help to manage living with difference. With recognition that everyone is different, we have provided general information below to guide awareness of ADHD and the assessments we provide for this.
