  2. Hi! My name is Daniel. I am a news producer and I would love to interview you about your recent op-ed about fidget spinners. I’m keenly interested in sharing your perspective, I think it’s severely under-heard. Warmly, Daniel.

  3. I get what you say about “respecting” neurodiversity. I dont think anyone quarrels with that point of view. Although some of us struggle to put it into practice. But that doesnt mean that one should ignore and just accept the pathology that may be present. I had a client who had severe debilitating migraines many times each month along with other issues. But she wouldn’t accept the homeopathic remedy that I felt would cure her, because she didnt accept that her “neurodiversity” could or should be cured. I think this is a nonsensical harmful viewpoint, and goes beyond the sensible point of respecting neurodiversity. Removing pathology is not disrespectful. Of course there might be debates about what is or isnt pathological. The beauty of homeopathy is that the remedy (not the practitioner or client) decides what is pathology – it only cures pathology and wont remove healthy mental/emotional states.
