Autism, ADHD or AuDHD? (Coaching with Brooke) How do you know if you're Autistic or have ADHD? What are the differences between Autism and ADHD? What similarities do Autism and ADHD have?

Brooke Schnittman (@Coachingwithbrooke) is an entrepreneur and ADHD coach with a team of 8 ADHD coaches; with over 120k Instagram followers, Brooke produces a lot of content raising awareness of ADHD traits and how to work with those traits practically in your own life.

Thomas Henley kicks off the episode by talking to Brooke about language differences between the USA and the UK, the different spheres of the Autism world, her background in managing the top-rated special education public school in the entire USA, and her experience creating the SuccessFULL With ADHD podcast.

One of the most difficult things with neurodivergencies like Autism and ADHD, is separating them from each other for the purposes of identity, support, teaching methods, and possibly the use of medication. In line with the topic, Brooke and Thomas highlight some common similarities between Autism and ADHD from a diagnostic standpoint: Intense fixations and interests, emotional dysregulation, executive functioning issues, stimming behaviours, sensory differences, problems with socialising, burnout, processing differences and a need for routine.

They speak on the interesting dynamics that occur between Autistic and ADHDers in social relationships and communication, whereby Autistic people are usually led into interesting off-shooting topics by the ADHDer, but the ADHDer finds a lot of use in the directness and blunt communication from the Autistic person in focussing on the topic of conversation or achieving mutual clarity.

Teasing apart differences between Autism and ADHD proved to be very difficult due to the large variance in traits of individuals within each group… but talk around hyper vs hypo awareness of indirect communication, Alexithymia, hyperactivity, impulsivity, transition or focus behaviours, verbal vs internal processing and flat affect came up as some solid ways to differentiate between the two.

Due to the present-day stigmas and stereotypes of Autism compared to ADHD, most find themselves diagnosed with ADHD before Autism. For the purposes of practical application, the two propose different traits that an Autistic or ADHDer can look for to know if they should pursue the other diagnosis:

Autistic people looking into ADHD could look for signs of daydreaming, racing thoughts, switching from task to task quickly, getting sidetracked easily and consistently, oversharing, or restless energy.

ADHDers looking into Autism could look for more issues with Autistic inertia, big issues with transitioning, issues with alexithymia, starting conversations, noticing indirect emotional cues, shutdowns/meltdowns, faux regulation and flat affect.

They end on speaking about the USA to the UK, and Autism to ADHD language differences. Thomas speaks on the Autistic community's aversion to the term Aspergers Syndrome, person-first vs identity-first language, functioning labels, and lastly his thoughts on shows like Love On The Spectrum and The Undateables.

1. Planning
Planning is key for autistic people and planning can help you prevent many meltdowns from occurring. A lot of autism meltdowns happen because of a forgotten event or a change in plans. If you pre and organise using a planning app or calendar you have a better chance of avoiding meltdowns.

2. Disconnection Breaks
Creating disconnection breaks in your weekly routine is where you make an hour or two every other day to completely disconnect from all demands and sensory overloading stimuli. This help create a Frequencey pattern of calmness.

3. Interest Engagement
Making sure to implement time to do you special interest, like gaming or reading books or researching stuff is important to feed the autistic thrust for interest. This helps to keep your active brain fed and less likely to meltdown.

4. Brillia
This is a fantastic homeopathic non prescription medicine that is toxin free and super natural. It can help reduce anxiety, irritability and increase focus. These are all components that can lead to a meltdown if not taken care of.

5. Hydration & Food
Keeping well hydrated and keeping in check with meals is a fantastic way to lower a lot of unnecessary anger that could lead to a meltdown or panic.

Autistic Assemble: Valid and Autism – With Jennifer In today's episode I am joined with Jennifer who is Autistic who was diagnosed April 2022 last year the assessment was in February so between a feel months but must of felt like a eternity. We discover similarities between our diagnosis although the 8 year gap between diagnosis's, we both found it accept to accept the diagnosis at first as soon as we found the Autistic community that's when we did start to accept being Autistic.
We talk about range of different things, we find we are sensory and get really irritated by certain noises, soft noises that it wouldn't impact every person, we talk about eye contact and following on reading a book with a class at school that was really hard for us without loosing concentration.
Jennifer points out the expectance when during a conversation people expect us to answer a conversation topic what we are talking about straight away without thought! couldn't agree more! so response can't focus on reality! which links into process speed.
We move on to talk about sarcasm and masking how both of us have experienced this. So much discussed in today's episode and a first podcast appearance for Jennifer!
great advise from Jennifer: "Don't feel pressured to feel any particular way to be autistic and all opinions and thought's of being valid, within diagnosis of all forms, self diagnosis too!"
Thank you again Jennifer, you was awesome!

Natural Solutions To Thyroid Imbalance [Podcast Episode #166] In our last podcast episode #165, we discussed adrenal fatigue. When the adrenals are taxed then the thyroid is directly affected. 
SOME COMMON CAUSES OF THYROID IMBALANCE

Low levels of iodine, and other nutritional deficiencies, as well as certain drugs can cause the conversion of T4 (thyroxin), the lesser active thyroid hormone, into T3 (triiodothyronine), the necessary active form, to become blocked. T3 is about three times more potent than T4. Clinical symptoms, the entire endocrine system, and nutrition all need to be evaluated. It is possible to have a subclinical condition, which is difficult to detect.

Nutrient deficiencies, medications, including birth control pills, and diet all play a role in an inability for thyroid hormones to convert to their active states. Pesticides, fluoride, mercury, and lead are among the strong factors. Certain foods can be contributing factors to the alteration of T4, to T3 conversion. Soy is a food that is associated with blocking this conversion and reduces the ability of the thyroid to function. The artificial sweeteners sucralose (Splenda) and aspartame also create weaknesses in organs such as the liver that diminish nutrients needed by the thyroid.
Internal stressors, such as inflammation, also contribute to thyroid disorders. If the adrenal glands are imbalanced, there may be an imbalance in Cortisol levels. T3 only gets into the cells if there’s enough Cortisol. Hyperthyroidism, or an overactive thyroid, can cause symptoms such as nervousness, anxiety, rapid heart rate, sweating, fatigue, heat intolerance, hyperactivity, increased appetite, eye disorders, tremors, and weight loss. For this reason, the high quality lab Diagnos-Techs includes Gliadin testing (a derivative of gluten), in the saliva/adrenal test. Most natural practitioners carry these take-home tests in their offices…

Autism Stories: Arwen Makin " I found being in court very natural, and it is important to not be frightened of it. The reason I enjoyed it was because there is a natural order of doing things- you know when it's your turn to speak. It's almost like performing onstage. I think that you're playing a role, and I think that as an autistic person, we do that a lot", says Arwen Makin. Arwen joins this episode to discuss being a prosecuting attorney, what you need to know about accommodations at work, and the impact of horses on her life.

This Week’s Guest





This week I’m speaking with autistic self-advocate, Mickey Rowe, who has had a prolific and varied career as an actor, director, consultant, and public speaker. He is autistic and legally blind. He believes that our differences are our strengths and wrote about it in his book Fearlessly Different. Mickey was our keynote speaker at ICDL’s 27th NYC Conference last month and he blew me away with his nuggets of wisdom and inspiration. I’m thrilled for you to get to know him a bit on this podcast!

The Untold Story of a Female Life on the Autism Spectrum Join Dr. Stephanie Holmes and Jennifer Cook as they talk about her life on the Autism Spectrum! More about Jennifer and her memoir:This intimate memoir reveals the woman inside one of autism’s most prominent figures, Jennifer O'Toole. At the age of 35, Jennifer was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, and for the first time in her life, things made sense. Now, she exposes the constant struggle between carefully crafted persona and authentic existence, editing the autism script with wit, candor, passion, and power. Her journey is one of reverse-self-discovery not only as an Aspie but – more importantly – as a thoroughly modern woman. Beyond being a memoir, Autism in Heels is a love letter to all women. It’s a conversation starter, a game-changer, and a firsthand account of what it is to walk in Jennifer's shoes (especially those iconic red stilettos). Whether it's bad perms or body image, sexuality or self-esteem, Jennifer's journey is as much a human journey as one on the spectrum. Because autism looks a bit different in pink, most girls and women who fit the profile are not identified, facing years of avoidable anxiety, eating disorders, volatile relationships, self-harm, and stunted independence. Jennifer has been there, too. Autism in Heels takes that message mainstream. From her own struggles and self-discovery, she has built an empire of empowerment, inspiring women the world over to realize they aren't mistakes. They are misunderstood miraclesfemail

Autism Sensory Adjustments For Autistic Adults And Children What home sensory adjustments work for Autistic adults and children? What is Neurodiversity-Affirming parenting? What sensory supports can you use at work or school?

Natashia runs the @iwanttotellyoubooks Instagram account, a take on Autism parenting that focuses on Neurodiversity-affirming, Autistic expert informed parenting. Natashia works on encouraging sensory adjustments in school and at home, highlighting the importance of teaching self-advocacy, a strength-based social model of disability approach, and teaching self-regulation.

Natashia's Insta – ⁠https://www.instagram.com/iwanttotellyoubooks/⁠ // My Links – ⁠⁠https://linktr.ee/thomashenleyUK⁠⁠

Thomas kicks off the episode by thanking his listeners for making the podcast the World's #1 Autism podcast, and a show in the top 2% of all podcasts!

Natashia and Thomas soon get into the differences between her style of content vs some of the overly-personal content from other Autism parents, highlighting the importance of humility and an open mind when entering into the Autistic adult communities online. Natashia sadly conformed to the 'expert advice' from professionals and OTs, seeing negative consequences in her own son… and seeking to shift the perspectives of other Autism parents going through the same experiences.

They start off by addressing the importance of sensory supports and environmental adjustments in home, work, and school environments; the conversation seemed to highlight the importance of sensory adjustments on well-being and productivity for Autistic adults and children. Experts and teachers seem to be highly adverse to accepting sensory accommodations, often touting 'no adjustments in the real world' as a reason not to accommodate… which we all know is entirely possible in adult life.

Everyone has sensory needs, neurotypical or Autistic, and although sensory differences are highly linked to Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) can occur in allistic (non-autistic) individuals. The two list a variety of environmental adjustments anyone can use in the home to make their space less overloading, but also highlight a plethora of sensory support items that both Autistic adults and children can use to mitigate uncontrollable sensory inputs in public:

Therapressure brushes, galaxy projectors, fibre optic lights, water features, chewable jewelry, shades, blue light glasses, earbuds/defenders, acupressure rings, compression clothing, joggers/trainers, soft hoodies/hats, weighted blankets, vibrating massagers, soft blankets, fidget spinners, fidget cubes, fans, white noise machines, wobble cushions, lotions, disco lights, colour changing bulbs, and sensory swings… to name a few!

Thomas talks about his experiences with sensory joy with theme park rides, stimming equipment, and spinning… pointing out the euphoria and relaxation this offers him as an Autistic adult. No episode would conclude without highlighting some adjustments that public spaces and workplaces can make spaces more inclusive to those with sensory differences – Thomas encourages the listeners to look at the NDTi 'It's Not Rocket Science' report, a document created by a team of Autistic adults on effective and low-cost adjustments organisations can make to their workplaces: ⁠https://www.ndti.org.uk/resources/publication/its-not-rocket-science⁠

Strategies for Surviving and Thriving During Your Special Ed Teacher Observations Having someone come into your classroom for a teacher observation can be a stressful experience that most of us are not too fond of.

#142 How autism moms lose weight and stop cravings, stress and anxiety. Sun, spring and summer are moments of truth when you're an autism mom. Most people are fasting, cutting calories and exercising like crazy to burn off the evidence of Christmas, Easter and long, dark days indoors. But you're NOT like most people.I get it.  It's frustrating when your mood, sleep, energy and appetite are all over the place. It sucks when jeans suddenly don't fit anymore and when we look pregnant. I understand every inch of temptation to DO SOMETHING DRASTIC. But I am here to tell you that the more drastic you go right now to fix that problem, the worse the problem is going to get. The strategies you used when you were younger or even before autism does NOT work anymore.Your nervous system is in pieces. Your hormones are all over the place because you've been living in stress, fight/flight and worry for way too long. Your body does not feel safe, and adding MORE stress into the mix (aka fasting, cardio, calorie counting, skipping breakfast, will have a horrible long-term effect on your weight (you will gain more), metabolism (it will slow down even more) and your hormones (permanent stress, survival, break-down mode.)So what do we do instead? How do we lose weight, tone up, and stabilize mood, anxiety and depression while turning autism symptoms around, getting stronger with kindness and biochemical/biologically safe approaches? That's what I'm covering in today's solo episode. I am also sharing a little life update (what's going on in our life, with that tiny home, my Jesus journey…you're about to find out. Here are 3 ways we can start turning autism symptoms around together, whenever you're ready… 1. Send me a voice message and get my feedback on your most pressing struggles. 2. Check out the free video series "The 5 hidden messages behind autism symptoms" and find your child's unique triggers. 3. Work with me privatelyIf you’d like to work with me directly to turn as many symptoms around as possible in my Autism Turnaround Coaching and implementation group..send me an email with "coaching" in the subject line and tell me how old your child is. I’ll get you all the details.

Interview with Simeon Thompson about self-acceptance as an autistic person, mental health, approaches to social interaction and more In this episode of The Autism Podcast, James Gordon and Chris Papadopoulos interview London Autism Group Charity volunteer Simeon Thompson, a British Jamaican autistic man living in London who has been working in the IT industry for many years. Simeon was diagnosed as autistic in 2007 when he was 14 years old, however he denied his diagnosis until 2015 which led to many internal conflicts that impacted upon his uncertainty on how he could fit into society.
Today Simeon, who has many interests especially music (rock, rap, R&B, video game music, jazz and more), is passionate about sharing his experiences of learning to self-accept his autistic identity which has been crucial for his mental health. In this episode, Simeon talks about his difficult journey of isolation through school life, how his friends advised him to access counselling which helped him get to a place of self-acceptance and embracing his autistic identity and diagnosis. Simeon also shares some fantastic advice from his own experiences on how to leverage your special interests to practice and sharpen your social interaction skills which in turn can yield more rewards.
If you would like to contact Simeon for any advice, then feel free to! His email is [email protected]. He also has a podcast called 'The Inner Link' (Inner Link Podcast (@innerlinkpodcast) • Instagram photos and videos) where he and his friends discuss interesting topics such as society, spirituality, politics, etc.

130. What is your Story about your Life? As women and mothers, we are beating ourselves up way too much and way too often and the reason that is happening is that we create stories and we have these beliefs about how life should be or how you should be doing this or not doing that or how nothing ever goes right and you are failing in so many areas of your life and parenting. Ever felt that way? That is why I did this episode because this week, I realized just how many of us are doing this.

Our life experiences and thinking shape the way we see and interact with the world around us. From the moment we are born, we begin to form beliefs and
perceptions based on our experiences, interactions, and environment.
Our stories and beliefs can have a powerful impact on our lives. They shape the way we see ourselves and our potential, as well as our attitudes
toward others and the world around us. However, just because we think something doesn't mean that it is true.  

Negative thinking is a common problem that many people struggle with and the truth is most people were never taught that they can question their thoughts.
It's important to understand that your beliefs and stories are not set in stone and more than likely many of them are simply not true.

The Story and Stigma Of DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) with N0trixx Is Dissociative Identity Disorder real and can people fake it? How does DID develop? How is DID related to BPD and PTSD?

@N0trixx is a dark trap artist and music producer seeking to share her stories to contribute to awareness of Dissociative Identity Disorder and mental illness. With a multitude of different creative talents, N0trixx not only dabbles in the dark side of life, but she’s also experienced it, which is reflected in her modeling, graphics, and of course… her music.

N0trixx Links – https://linktr.ee/n0trixx  // My Links – ⁠https://linktr.ee/thomashenleyUK⁠

Thomas starts off the episode by sharing his experience of once believing he had multiple identities, something he later understood as a product of Autistic Alexithymia. N0trixx gives us a brief overview of how Dissociative Identity Disorder can occur, before diving into the more relatable aspect of DID… dissociation. Thomas explains the two types of dissociation which are depersonalisation and derealisation, something very common to the autistic experience of shutdowns and even during moments of alcohol intoxication.

N0trixx takes us through her DID journey, starting at the earliest traumatic event in her teenage hood, and how her emotionally repressed home environment forced her to bury her negative emotions away. Shifts between DID alters were initially a well-oiled machine, but after years of repression of her ‘dark’ alter another traumatic event triggered a full switch. N0trixx was the identity that took control for the first time in a long time.

Originally a pragmatic and conscientious Wall Street investment banker with a well-established social network and family… N0trixx soon found herself deep within another woman’s life. Finding passion and drive in creative writing and music, something contrary to her other alters personality and skills. Leaving her successful job due to lacking the skills/knowledge required, she pursued her creative endeavors and started the N0trixx project to raise awareness of DID.

Throughout numerous attempts by family and friends to remedy her situation and dismiss her diagnosis… specialists and Doctors only confirmed her diagnosis of DID. The two end on speaking about the stigma around DID as a diagnosis, mainstream representation in films like ‘Split’, cases of using DID to avoid criminal charges, and alleged online ‘fakers’.

If you believe people are faking DID online, it’s either likely that they are doing so for their own recovery journey, want to raise awareness, or have a complex diagnosis of Munchausen’s Syndrome. It’s best not to air opinions on the legitimacy of their diagnosis unless you are a licensed professional with an awareness of their psychological records. You could be contributing towards a stigma that already impacts those with DID on daily basis, or be harassing someone with a variety of other complex issues and mental illness.

Whether you believe in DID or not, the two share some eye-opening facts and comparisons that may shift you to the former.
