Industry Reviews
"Discovering you're neurodivergent as an adult can often bring more questions than answers. Unfortunately, invalidation, misinformation, and unhelpful responses from your nearest and dearest are all too common. Jennifer and Monique--both late-identified neurodivergent themselves--throughout The Neurodivergence Skills Workbook for Autism and ADHD offer you much-needed compassion, companionship, clarity, guidance, and skills to navigate this process of better understanding and supporting your unique and beautiful neurodivergent self."
--Aisling Leonard-Curtin, MSc, ADHDer; senior psychologist at ADHD Ireland; codirector of Act Now Purposeful Living; and coauthor of the number one best seller, The Power of Small--Aisling Leonard-Curtin, MSc
"Like a warm hug and as if entering a dimly lit, quiet room after hours of overstimulation, this book is a heart-warming sigh of relief. As a neurodivergent person, I found myself crying of joy and gratitude for being seen so deeply while reading it. Like a kind friend or the sweetest pet, this book can serve as a loving companion to all who read it."
--Janina Scarlet, PhD, author of Superhero Therapy--Janina Scarlet, PhD
"This book provides clear, compassionate, and practical advice for anyone wanting to understand, accommodate, and embrace their neurodivergence. I've met so many people who have been given a diagnosis, but no real support to work out what their needs are or how they can improve their mental health. This book fills that gap, a must-read for anyone newly diagnosed.
--Alice Nicholls, DClinPsy, Autistic clinical psychologist specializing in Autistic burnout, and creator of the Autistic Burnout Recovery Programme--Alice Nicholls, DClinPsy
"This book will make you work, it will make you think, and at times it might even make you cry--but mostly it will make you wish you had read it a decade ago. A great gift for all the neurodivergent people you care about (and especially for yourself)."
--Sandra Thom-Jones, PhD, honorary professor at University of Wollongong, principal of, and author of Growing into Autism--Sandra Thom-Jones, PhD
"This is the right book at the right time. Both Monique and Jennifer have a deep understanding of the challenges that neurodivergent people face in our community, but also a broad knowledge of strategies that work to cope with the challenges. I can highly recommend this book to assist neurodivergent people to thrive, but also to all those who live, love, and work with them."
--Michelle Garnett, PhD, Psych, clinical psychologist; and founder and director of Attwood & Garnett Events, AuDHD--Michelle Garnett, PhD, Psych
"Unputdownable. I started reading this and kept going, and I bet you do too. A well-paced read for anyone who wants to understand neurodivergence in adults. This book is a science-backed way for ADHDers and Autistic people to build their strengths, manage their challenges, and, above all, accept themselves. Packed with information and practical strategies."
--Louise Hayes, PhD, clinical psychologist; founder of DNA-V; and coauthor of What Makes You Stronger, Get Out of Your Mind and into Your Life for Teens, Your Life Your Way, and The Thriving Adolescent--Louise Hayes, PhD
"With practical, accessible, neurodiversity-affirming skills for neurodivergent people, this workbook is so needed within a prescriptive nonfiction industry that so often overlooks us."
