You’ve Got Lael Episode 62: Neurodiversity with Greta West – Part 1

This is Part 1 of our conversation about neurodiversity with guest Greta West. Greta (she/her) is a speech and language pathologist who's passion is coaching and advocating for neurodivergent people.

Lael and Greta provide insightful perspectives and thought-provoking ideas about neurodiversity and its impact on various aspects of life. They shed light on the challenges faced by neurodivergent individuals and advocate for a society that embraces and uplifts them. Listeners are encouraged to challenge their own beliefs and create spaces that celebrate and accommodate neurodiversity.

Greta's bio:

I am an AuDHD parent, partner, friend, voracious reader, and a million other things. I have a bachelor's degree in theatre and a master's degree in Speech Language Pathology. I've been working in public education with autistic and otherwise disabled teenagers for nearly a decade. Teenagers are the very best.

I am transitioning (slowly, as befits my neurodivergent hatred of change) to private practice in order to serve my people...other neurodivergent individuals and their families.

I LOVE thinking, reading, and talking about neurodivergent brains, learning styles, culture, language, and misconceptions. I specialize in supporting people in the areas of executive functioning, social pragmatics and communication, bridging the language and communication gap between neurodivergents and neurotypicals, and cultivating self-advocacy.

I work with families, partners, and co-workers to support cross-neurotype communication and encourage joyful and clear connections free of the second-guessing and hurtful assumptions that too often accompany interactions between neurodiverse groups.
