Neuro Developmental - (ADHD / Autism)


  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can be described as a unique way of experiencing and perceiving the world, characterised by profound strengths in areas like pattern recognition, attention to detail, a passionate focus on interests and exceptional memory skills. 

  • Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) is a distinct brain wiring that brings special abilities like hyperfocus, creativity and high energy alongside challenges with sustained attention, impulse control and hyperactivity.


Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD)

ADHD is a neurodevelopmental condition that impacts millions worldwide. While it brings unique strengths, it can also come with potential difficulties and challenges.


Those with ADHD often possess an incredible ability to hyperfocus on tasks that truly interest them. This intense concentration can spark remarkable creativity, innovation, and productivity when channelled effectively. Many entrepreneurs and artists credit ADHD for their accomplishments and unique problem-solving abilities.


However, ADHD can also create challenges in structured environments like school or workplaces that demand sustained focus and organisation. Individuals may struggle with distractions, restlessness, procrastination and time management. Children with ADHD may have more difficulties following classroom instructions.


The key is learning to harness ADHD's strengths like hyperfocus, spontaneity and cognitive flexibility, while developing practical strategies to manage symptom-related obstacles. With proper support, accommodations and self-management techniques, those with ADHD can thrive by capitalising on their unique neurocognitive profiles.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurological condition characterised by differences in social communication, behaviour, and cognitive processing, varying in severity from mild to severe. It is crucial to view autism not as a disorder to be cured but as a unique way of experiencing the world.
