These references are starting points only and are not an endorsement or recommendation of any particular product, methodology or provider and are not intended to provide any diagnosis or treatment recommendations. You may find other relevant information on my Neurodiversity Resources page as well. And I offer my appreciation to my Institute for Challenging Disorganization and National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals colleagues for this compilation as well: many of these references come from them. I also have a YouTube channel for visually- and verbally-oriented resources. Please also take a look at my book reviews - you'll find all sorts of fascinating reads!

Clutter Here's my review.

Grey Gardens  Read my criticism.

HBO's 2009 docudrama Grey Gardens - finally, a Grey Gardens movie I like.

Hello, My Name is Doris  Loved it!

Stuffed, and I've got it analyzed.
