We’re excited to present the Differences Not Deficits podcast – available now!

The Differences Not Deficits podcast aims to be an accepting space to provide education and support to neurodivergent individuals and their support systems. As a speech language pathologist and a behaviorist we have realized that what we have been taught are “deficits” are often just “differences” in neurology. When we approach therapy in this light we learn from our neurodiverse clients every day. We want to empower neurodivergent people and those you care for them by discussing what we are learning and changing in our own therapy. We’re so excited to share this with you!
