Wheels On My Back is a first hand account about growing up neurodivergent and navigating a neurotypical world as a neurodivergent (#actuallyautistic, #actuallyadhd) adult with CPTSD.

Because despite the many myths, misconceptions, and stigmas that dominate the mainstream narrative, neurodivergent kids grow into neurodivergent adults - often with a lot of trauma, internalized ableism, and shame to unpack.

Thank you for listening! And, thank you for being <3
