The Brain Forest


Come explore The Brain Forest, which follows a mother and her son down the path of understanding the different ways brains can be.


Brains that go fast, brains that go slow, brains that do what they’re told, brains that say NO! 


Whilst there are many ways brains can be, here are some brain types that get a mention: 


  • Autism
  • ADHD
  • Dyslexia
  • OCD
  • Pervasive Drive for Autonomy (PDA)
  • Intellectual Disability
  • Giftedness
  • Dual Diagnosis 
  • Neurotypical


A heart-warming read that helps celebrate neurodiversity without dismissing its challenges, and centers around building a strengths-based society where everyone is valued for what they have to offer.  This book helps start conversations and offers ideas to the reader about what they can do to create more inclusive environments.
