Thank You for Visiting Everything Neurodiversity!

Hello, Thank you for visiting Everything Neurodiversity. This site is a labor of love and has been run solely by me. The hosting costs are minimal and I try to dedicate time to it whenever I can. I intend to keep this site as educational and ad free. 

I have learned a great deal from working on this site and the social platforms that go along with it. So much that I have started another site dedicated to fashion and clothing. Trying to make shopping for clothes easier if you will. I have curated close to a million items and build a web application to search and display them. It's still a work in progress, but If you are here I wanted to extend an invite to test and explore the beta version. Its embed below or available at
