Neurodiversity In The Forest

Welcome to the Forest, where we celebrate diversity in all its forms, including neurodiversity! Neurodiversity refers to the wide range of neurological differences that individuals may have, such as autism, ADHD, dyslexia, and more. Embracing neurodiversity helps us understand and appreciate the unique perspectives and strengths that each individual brings. However, challenges may arise when societal norms and expectations do not accommodate or recognize these differences. Let's explore how we can support and uplift all members of our diverse Forest community together!
