Suggestions and Additions

Neurodiversity is a concept that can be used for a very big spectrum of non-neurotypical brain wirings.  These pathways have been created by neurodivergent people with challenges that might not cover the entirety of the neurodivergent spectrum, however the creators of these pathways by no means want to exclude anyone who feels they should be represented within these pathways.

If you have benefited of any useful resources around a specific neurodivergent condition that you would like to be shared within the pathways, please contact: hello@moraywellbeinghub.org.uk.
