What is Neurodiversity?

Neurodiversity is a concept that every person has a unique brain with different skills and abilities. Brain differences are normal, not deficits. The neurodivergent community has unique and valuable contributions to society that are often overlooked. Some types of neurodivergence include autism, ADHD, OCD, intellectual and developmental disabilities, Tourette’s syndrome, dyslexia, dyspraxia, traumatic brain injury, and trauma.

What can I expect when I come to the Center for Divergent Connections? 

Your therapist will provide a comprehensive evaluation to best assess your needs and how to help you. You will be included in every step of the way to ensure collaboration on developing a treatment plan that best meets your needs. Your input is of utmost importance to us in determining how to best support you.

Why choose Center for Divergent Connections?

We provide a comprehensive, holistic approach to supporting neurodivergent clients. In addition to traditional counseling, we offer many therapeutic modalities that do not require talking. These modalities are often highly effective for people who need to regulate their brains before they are able to do more traditional types of psychotherapy.

Why do we use words such as “disabled” or “autistic” rather than “person with disabilities” or “person with autism”?

Language is a powerful means for how people view disabilities. Using identity first language helps to affirm the identities of the communities we serve and help others become more accepting of disabled people.
