Neurodivergent Individuals' FAQ

No. These courses are designed to support people with a wide range of neurological differences. The first round of courses released is designed for neurodivergent adults with autistic traits and autism caregivers. Future rounds of the eCourses will be designed for people with other neurological differences and their loved ones. The newsletter will announce new eCourses.

According to the dictionary neurodiversity is “the concept that differences in brain functioning within the human population are normal, and that brain functioning that is not neurotypical should not be stigmatized.”

In a broader sense, neurodiversity is often a term used to describe an individual with an autism spectrum disorder, attention-deficit hyperactive disorder ADHD, dyspraxia, dyslexia, and others with neurodevelopmental or cognitive differences.

When you enroll in this course, you will get lots of course content and supplemental materials to foster self-growth. These materials include:

  • Video course content
  • Interactive learning tools
  • Worksheets
  • eBooks
  • Podcasts
  • Resource recommendations
  • Access to an exclusive neurodivergent chat group

We will cover a lot in our unique e-learning platform. Among the many things discussed are:

  • Invalidation vs validation
  • How to order your questions and ask open-ended questions
  • How to show empathy
  • The importance of affirmation
  • How to offer advice
  • Listening skills

You have two options per course:

Option 1: Access all the course material at once without access to the online community. You will have access to the eCourse for 3 years.

Option 2: Receive one lesson per week across 12 weeks. You have access to the online community, and each week you will engage with community members online around sharing reflections and activities to practice skills. You will continue to have access to the eCourse for 3 years.

The purpose of the chat feature is to build community and foster a sense of comradery and have a safe place to practice the skills learned in a group.

To find out which subgroup fits you best, we ask that you or your loved one go through an initial quiz. This quiz will filter you into the appropriate group.

The chat feature is like a discussion board that appears within the eCourse. You will be asked to share your reflections or practice skills in the discussion boards.

As with any good chat group, participants' privacy cannot legally be guaranteed. We do ask though that you keep the information shared by group members to yourself. This helps others feel more comfortable using this online chat feature. Likewise, we ask that you use this tool appropriately and safely. That means:

  • Not sharing personal or identifying information to ANYONE, even if they ask for it
  • No e-commerce (no buying, selling, or trading)
  • Not contacting or dating others in the group for 4 months or more
  • No cyberbullying
  • No hate speech

If we find that you are in violation of any of our guidelines, we reserve the right to terminate your membership and/or revoke your access to the chat feature.

Autism therapy is not offered on this e-learning platform. If you are looking for an inclusive and supportive therapist in your area, we recommend checking out our resource page for suggestions on places to look.

Of course! In fact, buying this course for your neurodivergent loved ones is a great way to show them that you care about their happiness and success.

That being said, we recommend you only do so if the person you’re buying it for identifies as neurodivergent. We recommend you not buy this course because you suspect they are neurodivergent. It is important they have some interest in learning about their own neurodivergent identity.

We understand our courses are not for everyone. We will issue you a full refund within —- days if you’re unsatisfied with our course.
