Author: Gooding, Louise
Author: Burrows, Ruth, (Illustrator)
Year: 2023
Language: English
Media class: Hardback

Note: An inspirational book written by neurodiverse author Louise Gooding that challenges misconceptions and shows how neurodivergent brains work a little differently. Our brains are unique in the way they function, work, and think. Neurodiversity is still a relatively 'new' concept that can be tricky to understand, but this book is here to help! It is common for neurodiverse people to feel as though they don't fit in, but their extraordinary differences should be embraced. This book teaches children all about the awesome abilities that neurodiverse individuals have, introduces them to advocates who are challenging neurodiversity stereotypes, and most importantly gives them a safe space to feel accepted.
