Alex Fein on Diversity & Disability

Alex Fein is a proud member of the Autism Spectrum community. Alex celebrates her neurodiversity, believing it provides her unique capacities and insights. She enjoys transforming deficits into learning experiences, leading to greater understanding, compassion, and productivity.
Since the diagnosis, Alex has accumulated a cornucopia of tools to manage what is both a disability and a cognitive gift.
She believes in being open and honest about her neurodiversity in order to fight shame and stigma.

 

Alex hopes this will help others who are on a similar journey.
Alex's own autism journey began a few years ago, with a casual remark from her doctor. ' Do you think you might be a little bit Aspie?'
At first, Alex responded with dismay; however, once confronted with the evidence, found the diagnosis was liberating. She now encourages employees and employers to discuss neurodiversity so that gifts can be maximised and deficits managed effectively, leading to workplaces with exceptional morale and productivity.

Researchers who are into blood sports would be hard pressed to find a more engaging fight than that between the Cochraneists and the Clinicians over oseltamivir (Tamiflu).
