The term neurodiversity refers to variation in the human brain regarding sociability, learning, attention, mood and other mental functions in a non-pathological sense. 

It's interesting how diagnosis can be subjective.

Were you diagnosed with "Being On The Spectrum?" So was I! (Among many other diagnosis) And... I live a life filled with love, ease and comfort, including children, friendships, and a successful business. You Can Too!

Depending on the "expert" diagnosing you, the diagnose can even be misleading. In 1991, I went to a psychotherapist, I felt crazy and complained about hearing voices and seeing things. The diagnose was "situational depression" and "postpartum depression." Well, my daughter Kristina had died a years earlier, and I was pregnant again, so that made sense.

After a few more years (1997) I was desperate and thought I was loosing my mind. This time the therapist thought I should be diagnosed with manic depression, and she even considered borderline personality disorder and OCD. Well, in the years after Kristina's death, I had two more daughters, 5 and 4. I was overwhelmed with daily panic attacks, living with a manic fear of loosing the girls. I was swinging between being enraged by the smallest thing, and falling into deep sadness. I was mostly screaming at my children and picking fights with my husband. Friendships was out of the question. I could barely have a conversation with other parents. So, I guess these diagnoses could also be accurate. 

In 2006 when I spoke to a therapist trained in trauma, she thought my story sounded like I had PTS. Well, my feelings, thoughts, and behaviors were identical with what she described for someone who was a "trauma survivor."

In 2015, I started co-facilitating workshops with Danny Raede at Asperger Experts, and became suspicious of how well I related to “their problems.” After teaching the BEAM LiFE Process to “these people,” I finally went to a psychologist, an "expert on adult autism".

And guess what, he considered my story, my challenges, and behaviors, and at the ripe old age of 58, he diagnosed me with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

The High Functioning Person with an Autism Spectrum Disorder:

A “Tourist” in His Native Country 

Contributed by Beverly Vicker, CCC-SLP Bloomington, IN: Indiana Resource Center for Autism.

How can parents explain to relatives, neighbors, teachers, or service agency personnel that their son or daughter with an autism spectrum disorder has a significant communication problem? People often hear the high-functioning individual using good articulation, speaking in sentences, and engaging in comments on selective topics. The parentsmay be asked, “How can there be a communication problem?” Parents, when explaining their son’s or daughter’s disability, face a dilemma. Should the parent explain using terms such as difficulties with “pragmatics,” “social communication,” or “comprehension of the subtleties of daily communication discourse”? Probably not. Such descriptions do not explain to people how to interact with a person with an autism spectrum disorder. Parents really want people to feel comfortable about communicating with their son or daughter, and want to make the interaction more mutually successful. Parents may find that people will better understand the situation if information is presented within a familiar frame of reference. Thus, an analogy might help someone understand whereas a presentation of facts and explanations may not. Read more
