"Everyone's experience with neurodiversity is going to be different."

George Wolstenholme – or Mr. W to his pupils – tells us how his practitioner inquiries have granted him his independence, liberating him to try things out and learn from his failures as well as his successes.

He explains why neurodivergent teachers should be given their moment, and how he is learning to handle his environment and himself within it.
