Press Reviews

  • Dr. Wenn B. Lawson (PhD)

    As an autistic ADHDer this book is written from both a personal and research-based perspective. Raelene has listened to 'the community', and her own experiences. Neurodiversity affirming practice is named, explained and choreographed in every chapter. This is a game changer and potentially equips Clinicians with the understanding they need for this and future generations.
