Description

"Neurodiversity has helped me understand myself and provided a sense of relief that I'm a whole neurodivergent person functioning as my brain intends."

"It's provided me with the language to advocate for myself."

"I no longer hated myself. I no longer felt broken. I found a sense of community. A sense of belonging"


This affirming and thoughtful guide outlines how and why we need to fundamentally shift our thinking about neurodivergent people. We need to accept differences rather than framing them as a problem, abnormality or disorder. Welcome to the neurodiversity paradigm.

At times challenging and radical, Sonny Jane Wise explores the intersections of neurodivergence with disability, gender, sexuality and race. Through interviews, narratives, and the lens of their own raw experiences, they consider how current systems and structures that impact neurodivergent people are rooted in outdated capitalist and racist frameworks, and how these need to change and adapt to be neurodiversity affirming. Sonny Jane's words are a rallying cry to challenge the pathology paradigm. They offer nine principles for facilitating change, reflected in deeply personal stories from the neurodivergent community.

Powerful and persuasive, this book is a clarion call for a kinder and more neurodiversity affirming society.

Reviews

Sonny has been such a huge part of my personal education around neurodivergence, and We're All Neurodiverse is an incredible addition to that. It's given me so much to think about (both personally and professionally), and is such a necessary book for both neurodivergent people and neurotypical allies to read.

Sonny Jane's book is empowering and affirming, including personal experience, guidance and information on neurodiversity. The book addresses the 'pathology paradigm' around neurodivergence. It is an excellent addition to the literature on neurodiversity. Highly recommended.

This is an utterly ground breaking read that anyone who is neurodivergent or interested in neurodiversity should be reading. Sonny Jane Wise has managed to explain so many difficult and often contentious concepts in an accessible manner, alongside giving incredible advice for neurodivergent people and allies alike.
