Positive Aspects of Neurodiversity

We are getting incredibly frustrated by finding endless links to websites that just talk about the problems associated with the specific types of neurodiversity.

This is an example of one of these sites. http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/diseases/facts/adhd.htm.  It talks about ADHD in totally negative ways. It has nothing positive to say about it at all.

 

We have decided that we want a links section that includes only positive information about neurodiversity.  While we applaud the positive approach that these sites take, this does not mean that we endorse every single thing that they say!
