INFORMATION FOR EVERYONE
articles, resources, information, research findings, quizzes, it’s all here
Information chaos is a state of having too much information, not enough information, hard to access information, and just plain wrong information. The information landscape for Autism (ASD) and AD(H)D (Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder) and other kinds of neurodivergence is rife with chaos. It’s hard to know where to look for reliable, accurate information. It’s hard to make sense of conflicting information. And it’s hard to sort out fake facts from facts. At Scattergram, we enjoy diving into the chaos and connecting the dots so that we can provide you with the neurodiverse-affirming answers and resources you are looking for.
