Neurodiversity: Embracing Intellectual Differences

Alanna Whitney

Alanna Whitney is a woman with autism: but not only does she not let this hold her back, she takes pride in it.

Instead of letting their conditions hold them back, these people recognize that they are simply different: and that comes with both gifts and disabilities.
