In today’s episode, we explore the often misunderstood and underdiagnosed experiences of women with ADHD and Autism. Megan Heller-Foley shares her expertise and experience with Julie, as we dive into the unique challenges, strengths, and coping mechanisms that characterize the intersection of gender and neurodiversity. We aim to break down stereotypes, promote awareness, and foster a more inclusive understanding of ADHD and Autism in women.
