Living With Intensity

My son and I are intense. We’re passionate people. We feel profoundly, we experience deeply, and we get really excited about some things.




We write about ADHD, Autism, twice exceptionality, neurodiversity, parenting, advocacy, and education. We’re unique, just like everybody else.
