On today’s episode, we chat with Claire Fisher. Claire shares with us her journey after being diagnosed in her forties with ADHD and Autism.

Here are some of what we chat about in this episode:

  • What led her to seek an ADHD/Autism assessment for herself in midlife?
  • What this process was like for her and how this led her to seek assessment and support for her children.
  • Her lived experience with navigating the mental health system and support in New Zealand.
  • Her advice for others who are navigating the system or contemplating assessment.
  • Her wisdom about navigating the education system from her lived experience with her children and transitioning from parenting teens to young adults.

It was an absolute pleasure to speak with Claire and we can all learn so much from her lived experience.
