Today, we have our special friend back, Shawna Meek. She shares her own recovery journey and wisdom/training around neurodivergent couples.

“Here’s what my husband would say, ‘Neurodivergence is not an excuse. It’s an insight,’” Shawna Meek.

We Will be Discussing:

  1. What is neurodiversity?
  2. What are some common concerns in neurodiverse couples’ dynamics?
  3. What are some of the challenges a neurodiverse couple will face?
  4. How does a couple go around getting testing for the person who appears neurodiverse?
  5. What hope can you leave for our listeners?

    I just wanted to thank you so much for the podcast on Neurodivergent couples. We have been married over 40 years and are both in our late 60’s. This information may well have saved our marriage! I would like to possibly share more of our story with Shawna, but don’t know how confidential this comments box is, please feel free to contact me if you wish.
