Hi! I’m Kate


I'm a neurodivergent educational consultant.

I'm a neurodivergent person raising neurodivergent children and I've worked in disability and education for over 20 years.

I specialise in complex profiles as I have lived and professional experience in these areas:

  • Autistic & ADHD (AuDHD)
  • Gifted & neurodivergent (Multi or twice-exceptional, 2E)
  • Autistic with multiple diagnoses & co-occurring conditions
  • Autism, nervous system dysregulation & stress behaviours
  • Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA)
  • Autistic internalised profiles (masking)

"Embracing my children's and then my own autistic and neurodivergent identities changed my professional practice profoundly. 

I now apply best practice principles based on neuroscience through a neurodivergent-affirming lens and provide culturally appropriate, neurologically safe, and responsive services that change people's lives.

Cultural change and meeting neurodivergent needs is possible through collaboration, education, and compassion." - Kate Donohue
