We know that neurodivergence and symptomatic hypermobility are connected. This is why Neurodivergence is such a key word rather than neurodiversity as we are different in our tissues than the neuromajority. I would be happy to be connected to any discussion or had any questions why neurodivergence is so misunderstood and if you are not aware of it our peer reviewed paper on the same Routledge. A recent article by the British Psychological Society is here and I am quoted on attendance and EBSA https://www.bps.org.uk/psychologist/connective-issues. I am also presenting at 2 conferences on 30th January and there is 20% off if you quote SEDSConnective20 on the WestminsterInsight one. https://www.westminsterinsight.com/conferences-and-events/school-attendance/speakers/ https://publicpolicyexchange.co.uk/event.php?eventUID=OA30-PPE best wishes Jane
