A book that does exactly what it says, covering the whole spectrum of neuro-diverse conditions: ADHD, ASD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, Tourette's syndrome, and OCD. And importantly also covering dysgraphia and anxiety disorders, which are often overlooked...everything that's covered has, as ever with books by Hendrickx, been treated sensitively, openly, and with vignettes from people who have the conditions. It's good to see the neuro-diverse spectrum addressed by a single book, as professionals in the area often don't seem to understand the range of problems people have, nor that the same problems crop up for people with very different conditions. Thi final two chapters offer tips for anyone either in education or work (including seeking work), which (as well as being useful) show just how ordinary and simple the advice is. Organisations which bauld at providing adjustments for diverse people would learn how "special adaptation" are actually just best practice, if only we could get them to read the book!
Hendrickx addresses a lack of resources for the increasing numbers of adults being diagnosed in their 20s, 30s, and beyond, and provides a helpful overview for medical and teaching professionals, families and friends of the affect, and those unsure about the severity of their cognitive issues.
