Until It’s Fixed


There is no ‘normal’ when it comes to the human brain. We all experience the world uniquely and learn, think and communicate in different ways. However, there’s a generally accepted range of what’s considered ‘typical,’ and brain activity outside of that range is considered ‘neurodivergent.’ This includes people with conditions like ADHD, autism, dyslexia, OCD, and Tourette’s.

It’s estimated that up to 20% of the U.S. population identifies as neurodivergent.* While this may bring challenges in social, work or school settings, differences can be real strengths. We talk with KC Davis, licensed professional counselor, author of the book How To Keep House While Drowning and host of the podcast Struggle Care as well as Amy Root, Director of Neurodiversity Inclusion at UnitedHealth Group, about their personal journeys as well as what needs to be done to better support thinking differently. 


[08:16] Amy Root and KC Davis discuss why there’s increased conversations about neurodivergence, including recent research, advocacy and activism.

[14:53] Amy and KC talk about how women and girls are often overlooked when diagnosing neurodivergent conditions and share their personal journeys to diagnoses.
