Hello, I'm Rachel -- owner and founder of "The Autistic Helper".  I am a diagnosed Autistic ADHD parent of Autistic ADHD children.
When my oldest was diagnosed at age   3,  overwhelmed with information, I had no one to help me navigate the complex systems that lay ahead.   I also noticed that the services that exist locally are largely focused on changing my children to fit into a world that wasn't built for them, rather than accommodating their neurological differences, and celebrating who they are.
I've since become a passionate advocate and have shifted to a   Neurodiversity-Affirming approach with my kids and have had wonderful success from a behavioural standpoint, as well as from a mental health standpoint.
My goal is to become the person I wished that I had available to me when we were navigating the diagnostic process and learning about the available resources and supports.
