In the enlightening ‘Pocket Guide to Neurodiversity,’ author Daniel Aherne draws a poignant analogy, likening neurodivergent individuals to cacti that thrive in their unique desert-like environments rather than conforming to the neurotypical world. Drawing from his own experiences with ADHD, Daniel underscores the critical importance of creating the right environment for neurodivergent people, acknowledging their remarkable strengths alongside areas of challenge.

It offers straightforward tips and guidance for supporting neurodivergent individuals, whether they’re family members, friends, colleagues, or yourself. Whether you aim to improve the understanding of others or seek greater self-awareness, this essential guide is your compass to celebrating neurodiversity and fostering more inclusive communities.
