From Booklife FAQ Page

"Neurodivergent psychologist Loo debuts with this uplifting compendium of recommendations and techniques for late-identified neurodivergent adults... With a goal to “not just be ‘aware’ of neurodivergence, but also embrace and celebrate it,” Loo opens with the need to use neurodivergent language and a brief, but thorough, consideration of just what neurodivergence encompasses, followed by tips that range from how to cleanly communicate to positive self-care approaches. The tone is warm and inviting, and Loo makes it clear that readers should absorb the information at their own pace and take time to rest when needed.
 

Loo acknowledges that neurodivergence is a relatively new revelation and should be viewed through a flexible lens, with an understanding that appropriate language and methodology may change over time... Topics of note include masking neurodivergence to be viewed as “socially acceptable” (and the harm that goes along with that), healthy versus unhealthy power dynamics in relationships, and the need to avoid the common neurodivergent pitfall of people-pleasing.

 

Readers will find the colorful graphics, diagrams, and journaling opportunities particularly useful; Loo utilizes mind maps to illustrate complex topics, and visuals such as a “self-care menu” and a layout of creative stims ideas — self-care activities to help regulate emotions — are bold, bright, and incredibly helpful. The message is clear: “Being pressured to live like a [neurotypical]… is like forced cultural assimilation in the ethnocultural context.” While she writes that the material is meant for [late-identified NDs], this handbook will also prove a valuable tool for any neurodivergent or neurotypical reader.
