Sam’s talk was incredibly powerful and I believe many attendees got a lot out of it. It was part of a half-day event and many of the points Sam raised in her presentation were brought up in the remainder of the sessions. She was an engaging and inspiring speaker, who expertly wove her lived experience and professional experience into her presentation in a way that added depth and complexity. She discussed the intersections of co-occurring conditions, gender, race, socio-economic privilege and neurodivergence. She provided practical steps and advice around next steps in intersectional neurodivergence. She used great examples to highlight how cultural background, gender, sexuality etc. could impact how neurodivergence would present and why this was a particular issue in terms of diagnosis. Sam’s talk was thorough and pitched at an appropriate level.
