On March 16 AASCEND presents, online via Zoom, the newly-released book Neurodiversity for Dummies, with authors John Marble, Khushboo Chabria and Ranga Jayaraman. Neurodiversity For Dummies is a guide to understanding neurodivergent conditions like autism, ADHD, dyslexia, and more. The book is intended for the neurodivergent person and for parents, caregivers and professionals seeking success for a neurodivergent person. The book is also designed as an aid to service providers, workplace managers and colleagues, and to family members and friends. At the meeting the authors will give a tour of the book, describe how the book came to be, and respond to your questions about it!
