About The Event
Emma A. Jane (Diagnosis Normal) talks about the liberation and the constraints that being diagnosed can bring. As we see more people being diagnosed with autism, ADHD and other conditions as adults, she reflects on how this has changed her view of herself and her past. What does it mean when you have been navigating the world with an invisible disability to have a label put on it? And how does this make it easier, or harder for the people around you to see you as you really are?
