Neurodiversity and Mental Health: There’s no such thing as ‘Normal’

Louisha has always known she is autistic. Now, at 17 years old, she has been on a two-year journey to get an official autism diagnosis. In this episode, she talks to us about her experiences navigating school as a blind and neurodiverse young person (the good, the bad and the ugly!), the helpful tools she has used over the years, and her favourite parts of being neurodiverse.

She also shares her advice for other neurodiverse young people and gives tips to teachers and parents supporting someone going through the same thing as her.
