Hi, I'm Adrianne - a Neurodiversity Nurse for neurodivergent individuals and their families. As a wife and mother of two children in a neuro-divergent family I understand the power of acceptance, connection and living unconventionally. We continually strive towards balance and harmony, which has brought our family to a place where we are authentic, joyful and thriving. I get what it’s like to go against the grain and create a life that better meets each family member's needs. Along this journey my husband and I have have become more effective guides to help our children develop deep understanding of themselves, dynamic and creative thinking, life & self-advocacy skills and much more. Each day we strive to use everyday moments as learning opportunities to prepare our children for our complex and dynamic world. Seeing how beneficial this has been for our family and the families I work with has inspired me to become a Neurodiversity Nurse in order to bring this guidance and knowledge to others. Neurodivergent individuals can make enormous leaps in development when in a supportive environment with loving guidance. I love working with families and children to help positively alter the shape of their future.
