Neurodiversity Resources

These resources are only starting points. Dyslexia, for example, is only one recognized Specific Learning Disorder, involving reading. There are others involving math (Dyscalculia) and written expression (Dysgraphia). ADHD can co-exist with learning disorders, anxiety and other challenges. Learning Disorders can be co-existent with other medical issues, such as Sensory Processing Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, as can Executive Function Disorder. And so the resources I list for one condition are often valuable for investigating the others as well. You may also find relevant information on my Hoarding Disorder Resources page. These referrals are not a guarantee of any particular product, methodology or provider and are not intended to provide any diagnosis or treatment recommendations. 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, especially the ICD Guides. Please also take a look at my book reviews - you'll find all sorts of fascinating reads!

I also collect visually- and verbally-oriented resources on my YouTube channel.
